hi - we've wanted lots of trees, and when we shop the local nurseries it gets very depressing - great trees - but lots of money that we don't have. so . . . . my neighbor told me to check out arbor day foundation online, with the membership $15 / year you get 10 free trees (one category) PLUS their trees prices are GREAT - for example an apple tree - member $8 - nonmember $15 - approximatly. i am very excited about this - i could plant hundreds of trees and bushes around here. planning for next year - more apple trees - maybe more pear trees - possibly some oak, and for sure lilac bushes. oh, and hopefully some cherry trees. now for the negative - limited selection - small trees (no fruit for a few years) another place to check out is direct gardening - prices are low - compared to what i'm used to AND they have a few heirloom type seeds.
