Hi

I am, OK have been for a few years now, in the process of clearing my typical north-GA thickets of privet, kudzu, sweetgum, smilax ...
and planting fruit bearing trees and shrubs instead
aside from time and skin
this turns aut quite costly, if I keep buying from nurseries
if this souds like begging, please forgive,
does anyone out there have too many seedligs, grafting experiments, suckers ...
of shrubs or trees, that will survive in zone 7 with warm to humid-hot summers and down into the upper teens in winter
who is willing to trade or sell cheap?

I'll try anything from mountain ash to strawberry trees, goumi, aronia, cornelian dogwood, june berries, barberries, quince, sea berries, any nut but Hickory
thank you
ev

Ev, I was thinking a gofundme.com type project might work. Maybe do a plant a tree in your honor thing. https://www.gofundme.com/8t6n4ek4

It's not free, but transitioning from Individual purchases to Wholesale will save you a boatload.

Starting from seed yourself [perhaps using a nursery type setting to give the trees a head-start before setting them out to compete with the weeds] will save you more.
 
I love a good mentalist. And so does this tiny ad:
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
