Where are people buying their trees? The issue is that trees cost quite a bit of money and I am looking for a new place to purchase larger quantities of fruits, legumes, berries and such. In the past I have purchased the 25 tree bundles from Lawyer nursery in Plains, but unfortunately they have closed. Last year I was even lucky enough to get 20 seaberries.
Any place around Missoula, MT to buy wholesale? Thanks. I want to start a 2 acre food forest and wanted to find a good source.
If you have nurseries that you've purchased from before that you'd like to review and have on the grid, there are tutorials for making a review (it's not that hard)

Arbor Day has some decent prices, but I wouldn't suggest them anymore. I've had some decent success, but too many trees I ordered have struggled or died. Their selection is not great either. I will say that their peach trees have done very well for me. I planted four, three made it; two grew four feet in the first year, one grew 6.5'.
Kentucky has a state nursery with good prices on native seedlings. That's a possibility for a good source of rootstock and nut trees if Montana has something similar.
If you're looking for trees and bushes in quantity look at musserforests.com.
