Selling Live Trees

Here is some information I obtained regarding the selling of live trees from Tree Farms. I spoke with Brain Allen (303-239-4154) at the Department of Agriculture this past week and learned that if we sold live trees we would have to be licensed and inspected and would fall under regulations that the Nursery Industry has to follow. If we give trees away at no cost those regulations do not apply.

Non-compliance can be very costly and it could be problematic for our Tree Farmers who are also in EQIP or Forest Ag Programs that do not allow violations of law.

Hi my name is Deena and I got your info from one of the tree farmers there in CO, I am in Tulsa, OK and I work for Grizzly Mountain and we are looking for aspen logs they can be anywhere from 2" to 10" in diameter and we don't care how long they are as long as they are standing dead with no bark.
