Hi,

I did a lot of airlayers in the last year, and have trees for sale from thumb size trunks up to arm size with multiple branches, some are even flowering and one has fruit. The prices are from $175 to $825. The photos are of most of what I have. I don't have anything left in the $100 range. These trees took over a year from air layering to rooting to growing out in the greenhouse.

I can't comment on each tree and the price without the person looking at the trees in person. The photos show a variety of sizes, all are rooted and ready to plant.

Thanks, Mark

Mark, amazing looking lychee trees in such small pots. I would definitely pick one up if youíre in Los Angeles. Now the cost of gas driving to San Diego is more than the tree itself. GL.

Yeah, they are just filled with roots and ready for planting. I know the gas is crazy, you might have to pay $200 for a 3 foot tree shipped from Florida, haha.

You should try and get down here sometime, I've got all kinds of rare trees, grafted and airlayered. Plus there are some good nurseries like Atkins, Ong, Clausens and some other guys with rare things.

Wow, your air layers look great. I wish my air layers turned out like that. Maybe next year I will improve on my skills.

Yes as you know it takes a lot of work and failures sometimes to get good trees propagated. It is especially tough in California with our long winters where we never get above 50 at nights, it takes us a lot longer than the guys in Florida.

Yup, I did 10 and only 3 survived after 1 year. Lots of work to get them to grow after it is removed from the mother tree.

Wow!  I'm almost willing to drive down, but I don't think my car is big enough to bring them home :P

You can put them in the front seat and the ends of the branches bend easy without damage.

Someone from LA just came down and we put 4 tall ones in her Subaru with no problem, one of. them even had a fruit on it.
