    I reached out to CAS_HNTR with no response (offering to let him kick this thread off as he has done in the past)....so I will get this show started. This year, like in years past I encourage all us property managers to try to help out our fellow managers. As summer fades to fall much of natures mast supply is becoming ready, acorns are growing, fruit is ripening and the like. If you have a desire for a specific seed or if you have an excess of something that you can offer - PLEASE make a post here. I know I have sent seed and received seed in the past thru these sorts of threads before. It's a great way to get your hands on small quantities of something you may not other wise have access to. All you have to do is ASK!

    I’ve got Allegheny Chinkapins again this year. Would be happy to send some to anyone who wants them. They’re usually ready around the first week of October.

    Looking for DCO and Concordia Oak acorns, if anyone has some available.

    I can trade you some DCO for AC's if you'd like. I'll have a handful of DCO's in a couple weeks--if the squirrels don't get them.

    I'm looking to buy Concordia acorns, or any other hybrids really. I can offer sweetgum balls and China berry seed. (I'm working hard on eradicating this trash and replacing it all lol). I have alot of young trees I've grown from this thread in the past and will hopefully soon have some production. I'd like to thank everyone who has helped me

    I am going to offer up some tung tree nuts. How many habitat managers would not enjoy a free lifetime supply of tung oil? Everyone knows that tung oil is the Rolls Royce of wood finishes and is priced accordingly. Now is your chance to grow your very own tung trees for free. These prolific growers have pretty white flowers in the spring so you can use them in your landscaping around the house. Tung trees will start producing nuts in 2-3 years. Maybe you have an area in your woods that is receiving too much sunlight. Tung trees will help solve this problem by quickly growing in even the darkest corner of your woods and use their large leaves to shade out any undesirable native vegetation. Perhaps your hack and squirt technique needs improvement. Just wait a couple of years until after the first seeds drop and you can practice your hack and squirt technique for years to come. Now some scientists will say that every part of a tung tree is poisonous. Don’t believe the scientists! These are the same guys who said that kudzu would make a great cattle forage. Trust me, you want large stands of tung trees on your property.

    While I can only ship a few nuts at a time, I would recommend that you come over to my place and collect all the nuts you can carry to really start off your orchard on the right foot. The best way to collect the nuts is to saw the larger trees down to collect from the upper branches. Don’t feel bad about chopping my trees down. After you drop the tree, I will spray a revolutionary growth enzyme (triclopyr) on the stump that will allow the trees to flourish. Let me know if you are interested.
