Howdy folks!

I am in the process of setting up a food forest, and i am hoping to include as much variety as possible. I hope to eventually include any and all nut trees, fruit trees, and berries that can do well here!

As it can be very expensive, as we all know, to purchase plants, I figured that perhaps exchanging cultivars and varieties in the form of cuttings and or scions may help those of us with limited gardening funds get a chance to try out varieties that we may otherwise have to pass over.

I personally already have a pretty extensive collection that i would be happy to provide material from in exchange for other material!

I figured people could post what they have, as well as what they are looking for, and then personal messages could take care of the rest!

I can provide a wide assortment of:

Asian pears, apples, pears, plums, prunes, currants, quince, cherries, gooseberries, autumn olive, jujubee, cornelian cherry, aronia, paw paw, walnuts, chestnut seedlings, and a lot more, just pm me and ask if you're looking for something specific! I can give most of these as either rooted cuttings/plants or as scion wood.

I also have seedlings of native trees and shrubs such as sitka spruce, red cedar, doug fir, western hemlock, sword fern, red huckleberry, and more that i can sig up if desired.

I also have a TON of black walnut saplings!

Oh, and all the bocking 14 comfrey you could ever want!

I'm looking for:

English walnut varieties
European chestnuts
European x japanese hybrid chestnuts
Japanese/korean chestnuts
American chestnuts

Hazelnuts/filberts (orchard varieties, not native or ornamentals)


Paw paws
All the classics interest me as well (apples, plums, etc)

All kinds of things, really! Let me know what you have!

I can also provide experienced pruning services in exchange for cuttings!

Thanks! Hopefully this can be useful to people!
