As the demand for apples with red flesh increases you decide to get into the business. You have always had a green thumb and your grandfather’s old farm is just sitting there going to waste.
You live in the United States where growing apple trees has become quite popular. After some research you find that a good place to grow apples is in Washington state. It has a long growing season and moderate weather. You also learn that many people in Washington have apple trees on their properties and many of them aren’t aware of the rules and regulations regarding these trees.
This gives you the idea to plant some of your own apple trees and sell the fruit. It is a gamble, but at least it is a way to get into the orchard business. You just hope you don’t get caught and end up in trouble with the law.
You decide to plant apple seeds salvaged from your own apples. You always eat the apples so it isn’t too much of a sacrifice on your part. You buy a few items you’ll need such as potting soil and some fertilizer.
You then head to Washington.
After driving for a couple of days you arrive in the state and find a place to stay. The place you stay at has plenty of trees so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a spot to plant your seeds.
You carefully plant your apple seeds in various places and then return to your room to wait. It isn’t long before you start noticing changes.
Many of the trees that you planted start growing right away. You keep careful watch over them and give them plenty of water and nutrients. It isn’t long before the trees start growing apples.
There are many different varieties but you are especially happy with the Red Delicious and Golden Delicious apples that grow.
You give some of the apples away to the people that run the place where you are staying in exchange for room and board. They are happy to get them and it helps you out as well. Your orchard is starting to take off.
One day you get a knock on your door. When you answer it you find two officers standing there that tell you that you are under arrest for trespassing. You show them the paperwork you have for the orchard, but they don’t buy it.
You are hauled off to jail where you are told you will have to appear in court to answer the charges.
Since you haven’t planted any apples yet, it isn’t clear that anyone owns the trees. In addition, you planted them three years ago so there is no way to prove you trespassed. You are facing a possible jail sentence for both charges.
Will the court find in your favor or against you?
