Is there a way to combine fields when using the Union tool?

I have two feature classes, treesa_clip and orchard_clip.  The fields for the first one looks like this . . .
[ATTACH=CONFIG]27113[/ATTACH] and the fields for the second one looks like this . . .
[ATTACH=CONFIG]27114[/ATTACH]
When I use the Union tool to combine the two into one feature class, I end up with 28 fields, in other words, even though there are fields in common (with common names), it creates two separate fields for those (such as f_code and tile_id).  Is there a way that I could get the Union tool, or some other tool, to create an output feature class that also combines fields with names in common?
Thanks!
