After speaking with Lady B, I was told of the shortage of fruit trees lately. Aside from sorcs burning them down, it seems they are being felled for lumber. Please stop doing this. Fruit-bearing trees do not re-spawn. Once they're gone, they're gone and seedlings take years before they can produce fruit. If you must chop down trees please search for the ancients. They grow back soon after felling and produce far more
wood. You can also pick up fallen branches and make usable wood out of them with the COLLECT command.
