The Friends of the Bullfield, who look after the community orchard off Weavers Way, were saddened to find that two of the trees had been damaged.
The memorial trees, planted in memory of a supporter of the orchard, have been rescued, new stakes added and will hopefully make a full recovery.
The space is much loved by many local people. This year in particular, it has been a haven, providing a green space for fresh air and exercise outdoors.
Martin Swinbank, a trustee of the project, said: “We are very proud of the orchard and although we have been unable to hold many of our usual events this year, it is always open to all and visited by dozens of people every single day.
"When we speak to people, they are really appreciative of having this local green space.
"Whilst any damage is disappointing, the support of the community keeps the project running, the trees keep growing and we hope to be back to doing our usual events including an apple pressing in the coming year.”
The Friends are also particularly pleased to have inspired a second community orchard project to get started in Alnwick this year.
Residents from Chapel Lands and the surrounding area have secured permission in principle from Northumberland County Council to use an area at the top of their back field to grow fruit trees.
Practical support and guidance are being provided and it is hoped that their trees can be planted in the not too distant future.
