4587re: Endicott Pear Trees
- Mar 18, 2014Hi everyone,
When communicating regarding the Endicott Pear Trees,
please communicate directly to me via my email and not
through the forum....in order to keep unnecessary personal
communications out of forum messaging.
Communications to me will not necessarily be answered
immediately (but within a few days I hope) as I have a full-time
job and am receiving a fair amount of communications
regarding the trees and there is a lot of organizational
activity associated with this endeavor particularly around
shipping season (this Saturday I have to drive up to
Portland, Oregon to retrieve the new grafts).
The survivors of the 24 new grafts we will be receiving
this weekend will not be ready for shipping until fall
of this year or spring of 2015 (direct pick-up is possible
sooner). Graft viability usually is determined by survival
beyond June. Sometimes we lose one or two during the
heat of summer in the first year. So, some of the orders
coming in at this time may have to wait for the maturation
and survival of these new grafts....as the 30+ surplus
stated includes these new grafts.
I will follow this communication with another one that
has the most recent update regarding the Endicott Trees
and how to order (see attachment to that email).
The treasurer of the E.F.A. is the initial recipient of these
orders (Cindy) and she updates me with a list of the newly
paid orders. Prioritization of shipping is mostly determined
by the date of receipt of the orders. Individuals who live
close enough to Salem, Oregon to pick their trees up
directly from me save on shipping charges and are not
limited to spring and fall shipping times and can hand
select from the available trees.
Thanks for your interest in the Endicott Pear Trees!
