Hi all
anyone know where I can get about 1000 lodge pole pines from. Pinus contorta. North coast- the hardier version.

I want plants 1-2ft high, bare root. The usual guy I buy from only sells them at 6inches and I prefer taller ones.

I live in Leinster so that area suits best for pick up.

Cheers

In the thread called 'another view' which you responded to earlier this morning you said you were from Mayo???

Thanks TagWex. You must be looking for a date if you want to follow my movements this closley? Smile
Where in that post, exactly now, did I say I was from Mayo? Perhaps I have a place in Mayo and I live in Leinster?
Medieval Knievel, I think Coilte only look after plantations now, I contacted them and they can't sell me pines anymore Sad

No date required thanks. I read both posts minutes apart so thought it odd, it was just an observation. "I wish I had that in Mayo...." would surely make the reader think you were living in Mayo no?

IF you drive down the motorways going south or west on a Friday evening you will see others who may be wondering if their home in Kerry or Mayo or elsewhere... I am half resisting the relocation of everything to Dublin Smile

Yes, I sometimes get the pines from these lads. They are great to buy off. Cant praise them enough but they only sell 1+1 size and I wonder can I get larger Smile

Cheers again Medieval Knieval!!

Nice one for TM.
I like how the Govt say Dublin lost 250 million over this. As if the country folks wil keep the Garth cash they saved up in the USA biscuit tin box forever and ever and not spend it on anything afterwards. Hopefully some of it will be spent on native trees Smile

Look up 'a million trees in one day'. It might be of benefit to you.

doesn't seem to be the case:
"On 15th July a full refund including service charge will automatically be debited to the card used to make the purchase."

That may well be the case but that is what he said to me last night.
