Planting Distance for Fruit Trees and Berries

Apples (Standard) - 30 to 40 feet apart each way Pears (Standard) - 16 to 40 feet apart each way Pears (Dwarf) -10 feet apart each way Cherries (Standard) - 18 to 20 feet apart each way Plums (Standard) - 16 to 20 feet apart each way Peaches - 16 to 18 feet apart each way Apricots - 16 to 18 feet apart each way Currants - 3 to 4 feet apart each way Gooseberries - 3 to 4 feet apart each way Raspberries - 3 to 5 feet apart each way Grapes - 8 to 12 feet apart each way

To estimate the number of plants or trees required for an acre, at any given distance, multiply the distance between the rows by the distance between the plants, which will give the number of square feet allotted to each plant, and divide the number of square feet in an acre (43,560) by this number. The result will be the number of plants or trees required.
