    Question Tulip Poplar source

    My '04 Musser catalog came in the mail Wed, and by Thursday morning, they were all sold out of Tulip Poplars (Uhhhhggg!!!)).

    Does anyone have another source that I can try to obtain some Poplars? Last year I got some from Gurney, but they were expensive and they weren't good stock. Some died actually. Musser had them for the same price for 5 as Gurney
    had for just 1.

    I used to have 3 or 4 seedling sites in my bookmarks and wouldn't you know that I can't find them now.

    I only want 5-10 trees, not hundreds. Thanks in advance for
    any help.

    Matt- I hope this helps somewhat:

    Be sureto check out the feedback.
    Gurney's isn't who they used to be. I miss the days of great nursery stock at low prices and you could even talk to knowledgeable people. But a big conglomerate bought them and almost everyone else(you'll know who by the fact that all their catalogs have the same content with photos that make you want to drool). Honestly, I don't know how they all stay in business. With them, low prices usually goes along with low quality. If you ever want to get the scoop on a mail order garden company take a look at gardenwatchdog.com.

    Poplar Source

    If you want them for your own use try the Ohio State Nursery. (ODNR). I have heard they don't like you to resell them as nursery stock but I went over all of the information on their site and that they sent with orders and could not find any prohibitions in writing.

    The things I got from them were pretty good

    Thanks all for the sources. I did find some at Greenwood nursery. Not a bad price. Of course, after I did find them I found others (county) . But, it wasn't a bad price that I got (better than most) so its no loss. I'm just happy to find some. The state was sold out (checked there second, after Musser).

    I thought about that Shepp, but I don't have any seeds. Do you know of any sources? I've been starting oak, beech, and maple trees from seed the last few years and have been trying HIckory (no luck yet).

    Do the seeds require stratification (that's the right term right?).
