What's wrong?  No one should have to put that kind of line on a tshirt.      If you have a physical ailment that the docs can't figure out, you need a new doc of a different type.  I have been thru that nightmare myself.   Maybe I can help you find a naturopath or kinesthesiologist in Mass, once I know what keywords to google.

Lon,
Perhaps you're thinking of the old Hess' Nursery in New Jersey?   Among their 
greenhouse-grafted specialties was a selection of Pinus Koreansis [sp?].  I 
never asked the owner what the selection was for, it was as likely ornamental as 
it was for nuts.

I find the following info on Hess on the internet
Hess Nurseries. PO Box 326. Cedarville, NJ 08311. (Phone) 609-447-4213
but I don't know if the info is valid, the proprieter had a terminal condition 
10 years or more ago and who knows if the Koreansis grafts are still made.  
Another thought would be to check nnga.com as there are northern nut growers 
interested in pine nuts, I don't know if any graft.

I've thought of grafting pines for nuts myself, it would be another multi-year 
project if I did and I've got opportunity but don't know if I have motive!

Got a new t-shirt yesterday it reads:
"How do you follow your dreams when your life is a nightmare!"

been years and I can't find the nursery that sold them. I suspect there may be 
small, local nurseries somewhere, but a mail order source would be the best.
