      I have some of the following seedling trees to share:

      Hican (Burton) - a few
      Shagbark Hickory (Neilson) - quite a lot
      Pinus pinea - some
      Walnut (combe) - few
      Pecan (improved, from Schumachers)

      Give me an email please if you would like some. Make sure that you
      have the safe space and sufficient area to plant them out
      please...and please read up on cultural requirement etc. I think
      tubes and mulching are appropriate for the non pine trees...so you
      can find them easily, so they have extra heat, protected from rabbits
      and strimmers, speed up initial growth so wont get shaded out. Mulch
      gives them soil growing space, moisture, fertility and cuts out
      immediate competition from other plants. The Hican, Hickory and Pecan
      have long tap roots and need to be planted out this winter. The
      Walnut and Pine can be grown on in pots. Hican and Hickory are small
      nuts rather than bulk food productivity...but I would say worth
      having a couple or so in a food forestry project. Hican, Hickory,
      Pecan and Pinus pinea are slow to get going.
