    Wasn't to sure where to put this post, and it seems that this section gets the most traffic so figured I would through this up here. I have a job that I need about 20 hemlocks or some form of pines that are in the 6' to 8' size range balled and burlaped. The tree farm I usually get them from is all out of ones this size and can not dig up any more until the fall because of the growth pattern of the trees. I've looked around at all of the nurseries and tree farms I know of in the area, only one place has them and their prices are rediculous, and can not find anyone else that has what I am looking for for some reason. Just wondering if anyone knows of any places in CT or close to the CT borders that might have these so I can do this job. Im in the northwest corner of CT and at this point if someone has decent priced trees that are what im looking for im willing to drive up to a couple of hours. Even if you aren't positive just have an idea it would be much appreciated. I called around to a bunch of places today but either haven't heard back or the places don't have them. These are needed for a project to build a barrier between two lawns the people are not to picky (A bank owns the house) they just want it so you can not see the neighbors lawn to help sell the house. So any type of pine, hemlock or spruce would really work fine just two block off this lawn. Hope someone has some helpful advice. Thanks.

    I use Triple E Nursery (wholesale only) for all my plantings. Their evergreen stock is excellent and they grow their own. Great guys and great prices.

    They are located in North Salem, NY, very close to Danbury.

    triple e, hardscrabble farms, valley view nurseries, shemins,

    on another note, we do lines, i am very suprised you do go to hardscabble considering how close it is to ridgefield. i drive through ridgefield at least 2 times a week so i can go to hardscrabble.

    I'm actually looking for the same type of trees to serve as a privacy screen for on of my customers and got some great pricing from valley view. pm me and I'll put you in contact with the manager to see if we can get even better pricing for the both of us.
