‘L’katchila’, the time to recite the Bracha of the trees, ‘Birchas Illanos’, is during the month of Nisan. ‘B’dieved’, the Bracha can be recited after Rosh Chodesh Iyur as well, as long as the trees are in the budding stage.
Click here for a list of locations around Lakewood – and other towns and cities – where the Birchas Illanos can be recited. (Courtesy of Misaskim).
The Bracha to recite on the budding fruit tree is: “Baruch ata Hashem Elokeinu melech ha’olam shelo chisar ba’olamo klum, uvara vo beriyos tovos v’ilanos tovim lehanos bahem b’nei adam.”
If you know of any other fruit trees where one can recite the Bracha, feel free to list it in the comments section. TLS.
who said lechatchila its better in nisson- the mishna bverura says nisson is lav davka just urcha dimilsa!!!!!!
1. I agree! Very disturbing indeed!!
Ilan Ilan! Bameh Averechecha?!!
My apple tree usually buds in Nissan, but, this year it is just beginning to bud just now. I don’t know if it will be ready before Rosh Chodesh
Thanks once agin to MISASKIM , may you only be busy with such things,Amen!
Unfortunately, the Edison Apple Tree has died; a new one will be planted, but not in time to say bracha
If anyone has been able to make the bracha, please post the location of that tree! The tree needs to have visible buds (and I think white flowers).
corner of 9th and Clifton-the pink buds are beginning to show and the sign is up with the bracha (on the 9th St side)
