Tree Fruit Day
You are invited to join tree fruit members to help bring a voice to the tree fruit industry in Olympia by attending the 21st Annual Tree Fruit Day on Tuesday, January 24, 2023.
This one day event brings industry members face-to-face with legislators in Olympia to highlight the value of the tree fruit industry. There is no substitute for growers telling their stories of how a proposed measure will impact their orchard operations. The day’s events will focus on meetings with legislators and agency officials running from 9am thru mid-afternoon.
A detailed agenda of Tree Fruit Day events will be emailed out a week prior to Tree Fruit Day. We look forward to seeing you at Tree Fruit Day!

Tree Fruit Day Promotes Industry and Legislative Policies
The 20th Annual Tree Fruit Day was held on January 25, 2022 virtually. There were over 20 members that participated in over 60 appointments held with Washington State Legislators. It speaks volumes when legislators thank us for participating and say “it is so great to hear from actual growers that take the time to come over and explain how they are directly affected.”
