I bought one around 10' or 12' two years ago, and I paid $50 for it.

Not worth the money. Get one to three gallon size trees. They'll grow better and will catch the larger ones in a year or two. Plus they are cheaper and easier to plant.

Call the Wildlife Group over in Alabama, ask for Allen Deese. Great folks to work with. I have heard good things about Edward Fort Nurseries too, however I have no personal experience with them. I have been very impressed with the quality of the trees, including Sawtooths that I have received from the Wildlife Group.
I would also agree with the above post, buy smaller trees, buy tubes to put them in and watch them grow. They also seem to transplant better as well.

It is, we'll start taking orders again in Jun/Jul and you can request delivery from Dec-Mar generally.

A little late on the reply, but I agree. We bought 250 from the forestry dept this year and all of them are sprouting now. Can't wait till they start dropping!
