Anybody know a good source for super-fast growing hybrid poplar tree seedlings? Want to plant a couple of thousand and the nursery here is ALWAYS sold-out. Lynch

Go to the link below, Musser Forests. While the link shows it sold in quantities of 5 they do sell in large quantities at a large discount. I have purchased trees in quantities of 500 and found there pricing to be very reasonable.

Here in People's Republic of California, the CA Dept. of Forestry (CDF) has a division that collects seeds from a bunch of different trees from all parts of the state (they got a gridded system), and plants them ever year.

When you buy seedlings, they try to get as close to your grid as they can, so you'll have trees resistent to local bugs, etc.

I think they grew some 200,000 seedlings this year. I got some cork oak, incense cedar, pacific dogwood, and sierra redwood seedlings.

You might want to talk w/the Texas equivalent of the CDF.

OR...check with the local USDA Rural Development..etc. etc. They might have a biologist to provide advice...and perhaps some free seedlings...

P.S. I HAVE A GAL THAT WORKS FOR TEXAS FOREST SERVICE THAT DOES COST ANALYSIS AND A BUNCH OF OTHER STUFF FOR ME FOR FREE...ANYONE IN TEXAS CAN GET THE SAME TREATMENT.

Yah, they grow fast and make a strong windbreak all right. And they die fast too. Don't plant them too near your house. On second thought, don't get any at all. Pin oaks are a better tree and grow fairly fast too. And in reality, they are a weed tree.

Good grief!! Why in the world would anybody want any stinkin popple trees? I will never understand that unless that's the only thing that will grow there. They are nasty weeds.

BECAUSE THE PAPER MILLS WILL PAY FOR THEM...AND YOU CAN SEND THEM TO THE MILL EVERY 5-6 YEARS.
