New Market Opportunity

Have over-grown trees and shrubs in your nursery? This company is looking for cut branches of various trees and shrubs and are willing to pay for them. At present any overgrown Magnolia, cherry, dogwood are on their needs list. So, any fields that are overgrown, ready to be bulldozed, cleared or needs serious whacking...they are interested. Call: Suzanne @ Country Blossoms 252-244-5990. These large branches are sold by the bundle to the Northeast....they will pay some amount for the supplies; but this is not "pruning"....cut the trees/shrubs to the ground or whatever is possible. They will come here if there is anything they can use in season...that is, not just magnolia etc. could be boxwood, river birch etc. depending on the season and their needs. Also, of course, flowering quince, overgrown forsythia, pussy willow, redtwig dogwoods etc. Large dramatic decorative branches are the key.

For more information contact your local Cooperative Extension Center and ask for the Commercial Horticulture Agent.
