We have acreage and want to plant some more of the Box Elder and Field Elm in our fields/forest. I have only one of each on our property- they are not plentiful so I cant find/transplant them. Where can I purchase 2-3 of each? Also curious if they grow well in acid rich soil? We have that where I live and perhaps that is why I can't find many of these trees. Please share any further information on these 2 tree types you may have.

I enjoyed the article on Growing Black Walnut trees by Baughman & Vogt. In the guidance it refers to putting the walnuts into the freezer for 3-4 months. If it takes longer before the ground is ready for planting them, is 5-6 months in the freezer too long? Thank you. Kent Michaelis

I question is how do I harvest the seed and assure a good germination in the spring. I would like to expand my ramps every year without losing them due to transplanting from other stock.
I have a small fortune involved with obtaining 5 lbs of ramps. Do you know of any source for ramp seed?
I appreciate your videos and your time in the field of forest products.

I am interested in planting more trees along a creek on my property. Previously it was accessed by the cattle. The cattle are now fenced off from the creek, and I am interested in planting trees, preferably hardwood trees, to support wildlife development. I am looking for recommendations, with trade-offs between cost, time to grow the canopy coverage, as well as wildlife diversity.

I have a Bartlett pear tree that I grafted an old sickle pear to several years ago. Did not prune tree last year and this year the tree had sickle pears. Is it possible that the whole tree will go to sickle pears
