    Looking for tree seeds! Especially Oaks

    I am looking for some species of trees and woody plants to propagate, but can't find the seeds around my area. My list is below. If you have an abundance of any of these, just reply or send me an email at mlbsquire@yahoo.com. I will gladly pay for postage and packaging.

    My list:
    Any Oaks! Besides Northern Red, Black, Pin, Chestnut, and White.

    Especially looking for:
    Swamp White Oak
    Southern Red Oak
    Chinkapin Oak
    Scarlet Oak
    Bur Oak
    Shingle Oak
    Overcup Oak
    Willow Oak

    Other seeds on my wish list include:
    Bottlebrush Buckeye
    Red Buckeye
    Pawpaw
    Yellowwood
    American Beech
    Sweetbay Magnolia

    If you have an abundance of other species as well just let me know. I am collecting seeds myself so we could possibly trade if you want anything specific.

    Thanks!

    RE: Looking for tree seeds! Especially Oaks

    I had a lot of Swamp White Oak acorns this year, not sure if they are still good though, Fall came kinda early this year and so did the ripe acorns. I planted 7 last year, all of them came up in the Spring and Summer. I'll check them tomorrow to find out if any near-ripe acorns are still on the trees (they still have their foliage, but the leaves are starting to drop) and will let you know if there are any viable acorns left on the trees.

    I would think you could find some oaks at a park or school somewhere nearby.

    I found some Sawtooth Oak here on Knoxville. Want some?

    Thanks for the offer, but I think I'll pass on the Sawtooth. I'm looking more for some native oaks. Do you have any Southern Red Oaks down your way?

    There is a 90' Southern Red on my fence row and I sent acorns out to someone on this forum last year but never heard back. I'll send an Oak care package if you like. They will be sprouting and have to be kept cold till spring. If you can send some from your area it would be nice.

    tntreeherder: I'm really sorry, I forgot I had posted on this board. I think 8 months is long enough for a reply... I'll take you up on the offer this coming fall, and will gladly send you any acorns you might want.
