WIBU to take my picker and harvest these fruits?

There are council-planted fruiting trees on our streets and at the entrances to places like leisure centres. Nobody picks the fruit, and every year it falls to the ground, wasted.
WIBU to take my picker and harvest the trees?
I have no hesitation harvesting brambles and elderberries etc from hedgerows, or picking a few low-hanging fruit from the 'public' trees to eat as I walk along, but actually harvesting from the trees with an implement seems...I dunno...cheeky?

I'm not sure that scrumping (picking other people's apples) laws apply to public spaces? Try googling scrumping and see what you find.
Seems a shame for the fruit to waste, and why should a cultivated plant (apple/plum/pear) be any different under law than a wild blackberry bush on common land?
