I just noticed a young butternut tree about to shed pollen. I thought they
were all gone from this area, where the canker disease killed the last big
one years ago. It is growing in higher & drier soil than the original large
grove, so I wonder how long it will last, even though it survived 2012. Last
winter was NOT a fruit-bud test winter-- old fashioned forsythia bloomed
nicely this spring.

Please inform how to collect, cure, and package for shipping.
