    I am trying to locate some large (2-3" caliper) blocks of trees in the Louisiana-Alabama-Mississippi area without much success. Are there any good websites or nurseries to try?

    also look under Tnnursery.com a very good site for whatever plant material you need.

    Thanks for the help everyone. I still haven't found what I am looking for, but I have not yet given up hope. The list is pretty long, but the trees that are really important to me are Willow Oak (36....2" caliper), Sweet Bay Magnolia (102...6'), Foster Holly (114...6') and Native Red Maple (32...2" - 2 1/2" caliper).

    My local nursery can drop ship almost anything, anywhere. E-mail me your list at walleg01@snet.net along with a ship-to city and state and see if I cant give you a quote on your plant material. You can fit around 70, 2 1/2 cal trees on a 40 foot trailer. All I have locally are the maples.
