If you're in the New Orleans area, you can have 2 adolescent deciduous oaks (15
feet high, about 6 in. diameter, nursery price $400-$700) for trade or a much
lower price if you dig and fill. One of my neighbors, a man of 50 in good
shape, dug one out with a shovel in about 45 minutes.
I think that might be Musser Forests :-)) Another excellent mail order
source is ForestFarms. A google search will produce their websites. Neither
are located anywhere near the south but will ship anywhere in the country.
Have you tried any of your local nurseries? They will have a selection of
plants most suited to your local environment. While they may very well be a
bit of a drive away, that offsets the increased costs of shipping and you
will invariably get larger plants than you could by mail. Unless you are
looking for something that is uncommon and difficult to find, it often makes
more sense to patronize and support your local nurseries.
