After Ryan looked at my trees, he said that if he lived down near Houston that he would be doing the Tallows like mad. Although he didn't really like the one fashioned in a Aspen like design, he did like the refinement qualities of the species. With all that said, that is what I am going to do. I took some cues on soil for collecting Yamadori from Ryan and the last two I collected have shown no sign of stress with the transplant. One of the two trees had some foliage down near the base and with cutting the surface roots back and completely sawing off the tap root, the foliage did not even wilt. Pretty amazing for a deciduous tree.
Anyway, if anyone is interested in purchasing a Tallow, let me know. Randy, I have not forgotten you. I think it will be easier to ship in the winter or early spring. I need to send you a picture of the one we had discussed, it is growing like mad. It is extremely healthy and waiting for it's new home.
