Lychees would really be an issue.  I know in Florida, they would be required to be put in quarantine by USDA protocols.  Not sure what, if any, protocols would need to be followed in California.

Yes, I would stick with one species (m. rubra). Already risky enough, and lychee particularly is a problem right now. Wouldn't want to give any extra reasons for the shipment to be held.

Just realized my location was vague.
I'm in Southwest Ranches, FL but will travel anywhere in South Eastern FL to pickup.

Two of each.
So how do we do the payment? How do we keep everything transparent? How are the phyto certificates going to be handled?

I'd be interested in one of each.

I tried importing lychees from China a few years ago.They came and the local Ag inspector checked them in my quarantine area where they have to be for 2 years. After more than a year the state AG came and said I couldn't have them so they took all 50 and destroyed them. I think it was because China didn't want to have them imported to the USA.

Thanks for putting this together beicadad. I'd be interested in:

Dongkui: 2 trees
Black Peak: 2 tress

I'm also located in San Diego, CA.

Please check my updated post. We still need to get more orders in to get better price. If you know someone who might want the tree, please ask him/her to sign up.

Update 3/23:
  • I created a spreadsheet here with your order info here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/11ujd-xLLAKCaBIxLbK0HJnhlZNeBrwyCr66AOc8sqec/edit?usp=sharing
  • Please double check for accuracy. Comment in the google sheet or post your correction here. If your username is highlighted, you didn't specify the accurate # of trees or varieties
  • This is a non-profit effort to help everyone (myself included) to get this amazing tree. Hopefully some of us will be successful so that we can help each other out in the future. That being said, I will charge $1 per tree to cover my time, just for transparency purpose.
  • The price is an estimate based on the quote from the exporter based on 300 trees, and until I collect the $ from everyone (and hence the final # of trees), the price is just an estimate. I hope to further negotiate price down once we are ready to commit.
  • Survey will close 3/24 9PM PST. On or before 3/25, I will announce the price (with $1 added) and start collect $ from everyone (Paypal friend's and family option). Potential complication is that people don't send me money, cause the final order size to be much smaller, and hence we might need to pay higher price per tree
  • After collecting money, I will send 50% of the payment to the exporter as a deposit. He will get the trees ready and apply for phyto certificate. Then he will ship the trees out. I am still negotiating when to make final payment. He wants full payment after phyto certificate and other government approvals (which he claims is the norm), and I want to pay him only after receiving the tree.
  • Please stay tuned for updates! We need to act pretty quickly since the weather is getting hotter and the conditions become harsher for the trees

I am interested in Black Peak. Would anyone in FL order an extra one for me, and eventually I come and pick it up (might be a year or so), Ill pay double..

Also, is this exporter willing to sell scions and viable seeds (even at a high price?)?

One more, maybe a long shot but can M. rubra be pollinated by Arbutus unedo or wax myrtle?

Update 3/24: Looks like the import permit will take a few days to be approved (Seller said I didn't need it, until I called USDA). Therefore I am extending the survey for a few more days.

UDSA said lychee trees are not allowed to be imported.
