Last year, I purchased 2 Siberian Stone Pines and 17 Korean Stone Pines from a Canadian outfit, Rhora's Nut Farm. The trees were not cheap, at least in price. Despite good conditions this summer and careful watering, half of the trees failed during the summer. So I'm really bummed that 1) Rhora's has hiked up their prices considerably because they have an apparent monopoly, and 2) I have no other apparent options.
If anybody out there knows of another nursery that will ship to Wisconsin, USA, I'd love to hear about it.
Also, if you're reading this, realize that we need a US source of stone pines for permaculture. There is an evident demand. I'm considering buying a bunch of seed and starting as many trees as I can so you can get these essential trees.
Douglas, you may want to look into forestag.com. They sell Korean pine in bundles of 25 for $150/bundle. They advertise it as Pinus koraiensis. I ordered from them them last year and was pleased with the condition of their stock when it arrived and had good survival of hazelnuts and sea berry. Good luck.
I know this is an old thread, but where in Wisconsin are you? Have you heard of The Draw? http://www.thedraw.org They are friends of ours and have a Permaculture nursery and homestead and we purchased a Swiss stone pine from them last year. They also carry Korean and Dwarf Stone pines. They are located Near Bayfield in Northern WI. We live just 50 miles away from them on the MN northshore (As the crow flies!).....
Bill the link to the draw still doesn't quite work. It says %20 at the end of the url. If you know that its there, you can remove it and then the link will work, but I don't think that's what you meant to do.

That is weird, since %20 indicates a space, which wasn't part of it. I gave it another go, could someone test it and see if it goes to the webpage correctly?
