Rumors are that places selling evergreen plugs are also sold out for next spring.

After hauling water for two months of drought, I am not anxious to order trees.

Glad I got 8 from him last year. Only variety I wanted to add was the Sweet Dog. I did get 5 more from NWC but I wasn't planning on any more crabs next year. The bug bit again unfortunately, ;).

Terry at NWC, now whitetailcrabs.com, has equally good trees available.
2nd that. I planted 8 from Blue Hill and 10 from NWC this spring (plus 3 the previous spring) and have 5 on order (plus 2 more I’m trying to add) for next spring. All were quality trees. Terry’s especially.

Agreed.

His are doing great that I’ve planted.

I only live about 30 minutes from Blue Hill, so that's my main reason for ordering from there over whitetailcrabs. I don't have any crabs currently planted, that lived anyway. I was still able to order a few. Got an October, Chestnut, and Kerr, along with a couple wild crabs to try out a little grafting. After that I'm going to have to wait and see. I'm running out of room haha.

Hey Pat,
If Blue Hill is a half hour from you, then NWC is only another hour...well worth saving the $$ and it's a pretty drive....but I definitely understand that archery opens soon and that daylight is about to be very precious!

When I talked to him about a week ago, he said some of the new varieties and most popular were limited like the Big Dog crab only had ~100 in stock and they disappeared in minutes.

Two months of drought, a heavy fruit load, and then 2-3 hailstorms have limited the amount of scion I will have this year. It seems like Ryan has a few trees planted for his own Big Dog scion source.

Oh that's right. I did look that up before. They're just west of Wilke Barre. Definitely more than an hour but probably not too bad. I'm half an hour South of Blue Hill.

That’s weird. I drive by there fairly often and never noticed a sign for them.

I don't know if there's a sign, but I just followed my GPS and it took me right to the driveway...you can also see lots of trees in a field in the front

I didn't get an email notification so I didn't check his website until I went home from work. Probably around 5pm and all the pears were gone. Maybe next year.
