I think it's a great idea, but 20 trees for someone with only 3/4 acre like
me are too many. How about auctioning off individual trees and setting the
opening bid as $20 per tree, plus shipping? That is a bargain for any tree,
especially one that is a specific antique variety that one may want.
Also, on fund raising. This summer at the annual meeting, many of us
brought items for a silent auction. I believe $600 were raised in this
manner. I get many free plants and products to test from manufacturers and
cannot use them all. I know several others on this list get free stuff,
too. Why don't we also auction off our extras via the listserv? I will be
glad to do this when the deluge starts arriving in the late April.
