About the Cost of Fruit Trees
1. Find a suitable location and purchase it.
2. Prepare the land by clearing away rocks and thorn bushes.
3. Bring water, electric and other infrastructure to the site.
4. Install a fence around the entire area to keep away the animals.
5. Turn over, flatten and fertilize the soil.
6. Install a computerized irrigation system.
7. Strategically plan and carefully plant all the trees.
8. Weed, water, fertilize, & prune for 3 years with OUT selling the fruit (Orlah).
9. AFTER 4 years farmers can finally redeem and sell the fruits (Neta Revai).
10. On the 7th year (Shmitta) no pruning or selling the produce.
Planting FRUIT trees fulfills the Mitzvah (Commandment) to plant FRUIT trees
when entering and returning to the land of Israel as stated in
(Leviticus 19:23 ויקרא)
וְכִי תָבֹאוּ אֶל הָאָרֶץ וּנְטַעְתֶּם כָּל עֵץ מַאֲכָל
When you come to the Land of Israel plant FRUIT trees
The reason Moshe (Moses) wanted to enter the land of Israel so much
was to fulfill the Mitzvot “Ha'Tluyot Ba'Aretz” (Biblical laws applicable only in the land of Israel) such as: Orlah, Netta Rivai, Shmitta, T'Rumot, Ma'asrot, K'layim, Bikurim etc...
Everyone who purchases a fruit tree to be planted by a farmer in Israel is a partner with the farmer in ALL the mitzvot that Moshe (Moses) wanted to fulfill but never had the chance.
It's also a LOT less expensive than flying to Israel to perform all these mitzvot:)
