A Cherry Tree and its lifetime

There was not an official tour of Great Lakes Packing Company when the interns arrived.  I am lucky enough to have made friends with a few of the line workers in back who have been in the industry for quite some time now.  They had asked me if I wanted to go on a orchard run with them and see what it was all about.  Figured it got me out of the office for a little while, why not go.  We were driving through the orchards and stumbled upon a very young orchard, in which a very noticeable fact was stated.  Each Cherry tree in it’s lifetime will produced over $100,000 worth of raw product for the tree’s owner.  Here is a picture of a very young orchard.  Just imagine how many hundred of thousand of dollars is just chilling in that orchard.
