Letís goooo!
To recipients of trees, make sure to prepare to raise them. Bare root trees need a lot of care until the harden off. Speaking from experience👍.

Do you have any tips? I am planning to wrap them in buddytape (grafting tape) to help seal any moisture inside and keep them in the shaded greenhouse with very well draining soil medium

Yes,
make sure to keep them humid...So either wrap in parafilm or buddytape (wish I bought some buddytape after hearing why it's superior to parafilm) or keep them in a tent with humidifier or similar setup. For out of state people getting them shipped it is important to be ready cause shipping will stress tree even more. Once arrived I soaked mine in plain water and potted them up. Don't overwater; it will cause root rot. Once established these are super easy to grow. Please quarantine and treat for RKN too (monterey nematode control as recommended by Simon). Don't want to spread them to your garden. Last time lots of people failed to recognize that - just cause they passed inspections doesn't mean they are pest free. RKN is already prevelant here so that's why they were allowed in. I treated mine and they were free and went into the ground a few months later. This order I'm not sure how the trees will look, but always better to be safe than sorry.

Thanks for the tips, how long would you recommend soaking them in water prior to planting for? Also which treatment do you recommend for RKN nematodes? Thanks, You're the best for these tips! I'm sure lots will benefit from reading this.

I use Monterey Nematode Conrtrol.
I just soaked them for like 30 mins while I was preparing the soil to plant Edit: some people soaked with other stuff like superthrive?, but tbh I don't know if it helps or not.
Also,
I'm not an expert either. There are many others who know way more than I
Hope that helps!

Bill, just realized I never put Location on the Google Doc so I tried to add my zip today in the Location column but it somehow ended up in the Total Trees column (yes, I am Google Docs challenged).  Anyhow, I am LAX area, 90402 and as I mentioned in my email, if Joe K can't be the collection point this year, I am certainly willing to do it.

Folks,
 The order has been sent to the exporter with the number of 800 trees.
This is probably the last order of Yangmei trees I do for the community. We are aiming to get our trees in mid-January, 2023.

 Thank you all for the support and happy new year!

Bill

Mid January would be great! Keep us updated. Hopefully we will all have great amounts of success this round. Thank You, Bill. Bill, If you decide that you do not want to lead the group buys anymore would you be willing to pass on the info to someone else in the forum to take up the effort for the community. I personally would love to be apart of  group buy for some cultivars or longan or lychee that are not easily available in the US but may be available if suitable export quantities are ordered. Once again, Thank You.

Thank you Bill, you truly rock! (guitar solo)

Can only imagine how much time and stress is involved in these endeavors, and then dealing with questions and even complaints. Much gratitude for helping so many of us add yangmei to our gardens and orchards.

Ready for grafting!!

 Yes, budutukaco,
  You can still add your order. This time I added additional 100-150 trees as backup.
  Please let me know the varieties and total qty. 

 Regards and happy new year!

Happy New Years! Everyone give Bill a special thanks for organizing this effort, Bill whats the plan when the trees arrive? Do we reach out to you to send shipping payment when you have the specific prices on that or will you send us an invoice? Cheers.

 Yes, local pick up for bay area and Socal folks. Ideally one person can come to bay area to pick up the trees for all SoCal folks as we did in the previous two rounds. For folks in other areas, I will do USPS priority shipping , the shipping cost will be based on the actual charge in the post office.

 Regards,
 bill

 Bill, I would recommend using a website called PirateShip you are able to get around 50% off shipping costs and easily print pre paid labels, Ive been using it (for free) and saving a lot of money. Its a really good platform to compare shipping costs and generally ive found UPS is half the price of USPS on the size of larger boxes. Its worth taking a peek at! Cheers
