I still plant orchards, both for looks and to produce some fruit for my people before trade starts really going.

It'll be interesting to see what can be achieved with the mod kit.

I'd be happy with them if they died off half as fast.

It takes 3 world years for them to become productive, which is 15 people years.  That is too long for a fruit tree.  Then they only produce for about 3 years before they start dying.  That is 30 people years old, which is too short for a tree.

While we're at it, once we start modding why not berry fields? Strawberries could work like field crops and blueberries and raspberries like orchards (without the constant replanting).

I didn't work out the math; you are right that's way too fast for a tree to die.  I think having them die half as fast and adding berry fields are awesome ideas!
