‘You get on outta dere,’ Delacroix said, sounding like a nervy old woman telling a kid to climb down out of thatere apple tree. ‘You ain’t suppose to be in there wit no one else on the block.’

I surmise thatere is a typo, right?

Thank you.

    No, I think it is supposed to reflect the way the person speaks.
    "Thatere apple tree" = that there apple tree
