This outlet is not for commercial resellers. As the DNR website stipulates:
- Provide a planting report upon department request
- Protect plantings as much as possible from fires, grazing animals and trespassers
- Keep live, rooted trees in place (trees with roots attached may not be uprooted for sale as live or ornamental trees)"
If you are on the Eastern shore and want to see the farm with over 3 million seedlings, their address is:
John S. Ayton State Tree Nursery
3424 Gallagher Road
Preston, MD 21655,
(a place sure to appeal to at least one of my loyal readers ; )
Rather than rush into ordering, my focus will first be on establishing food forest patches where the seedlings can be planted throughout my property. This process of sheet mulching requires a year for wood chips and leaves to break down before planting can begin. My goal is at least 25 patches on my property ready for planting by 2018.
