Identify a place to purchase red maple and bur oak sapling for wedding planting

Hi there: I work for cooperative extension at nc state university in the extension forestry program. I thought I would start with extension for my question / quest. My step son is getting married in denver next week and part of the ceremony they would like to do a tree planting...specifically red maple and bur oak. They are hoping to use only 2-3 old stock so it would not be too big. Is there any industry, business, university, or state nursury that would be able to supply something like this? Of course this is the absolute worse time of year to do something like this but if the roots are not disturbed too badly there may be a way to minimized the shock, another reason why a seedling would probably be better for this. I will be flying out this Friday and Hope to maybe be able to get my hands on something by Monday next week...if possible. Please give me a call and we may discuss. My cell phone is best 828.734.9795 Many many thanks and looking forward to discussing with you.

Software application

I have a software application that can evaluate a whole range of energy and related data. In a sense, the application can process all relevant data.

Would Omnia Aptus or shortened omniaptus be an appropriate way to reference that all [data] fits in this application?

Crepe Myrtles, Moving in the summer

Hello, I am in a situation where there is being some unplanned work done on my property and I find myself having to move some crepe myrtle trees in the heat of the summer. I know this should be done when the trees are dormant but as I said, this was not planned and it is either this or just get rid of the trees all together which I really don't want to do. I have three trees that are about 4 years old and are about 7 feet tall. What can I do to increase their chances of surviving this relocation? Waiting until later is not an option. Should I cut them back now? After being moved? Not at all? Thanks!
