Over the last 3 years, ReRoot Pontiac has planted approximately 5000 trees and bushes for fruit(apple and pear, berry(black raspberry, strawberry, elderberry), nut(persimmon) production. We have 16 lots, totaling 5 acres, that feature permaculture guild planting designed to maximize ecosystem services.  These ecosystem services include biodiversity protection, pest reduction, increased nutrient uptake and availability, greater water infiltration, increased pollination, and decreased disease pressure.
