I have an almond tree. Last year another tree grew nearby, and it’s growing steadily taller. Do I have to keep orlah for three years with the newly sprouted tree

  • It depends where the extra tree has grown from. If it grew from the ground, it’s considered a new tree and one would have to wait three years. (Some actually cut it down, so they don’t come to benefit from it by mistake.) If it has grown from the trunk of the tree above ground it is considered part of the same tree, and is therefore not considered orlah.
