How close do pollinators need to be to pollinate my new dwarf honeycrips trees? I have 4 crabapple trees on my 3/4 acre lot. Will they pollinate. They are in the frontyard, the honeycrisp trees are in the back yard.

We usually recommend line of sight and within 100 feet of one another. However, bees and wasps usually find their ways around a garden without too much trouble. You'll know if they were successful when your trees begin to develop fruit. Enjoy your harvest!
