WANTED: Big leaf maple saplings/seedlings

Since this is a wetter September, I hope to get some trees planted along our propertyline. I'm hoping that it is also possible to get good roots when digging trees.
So if anyone can bring some Acer macrophyllum, large seedlings preferred, to either the Lake Tapps trade or possibly the g elephant trade, please let me know.

Here are some plants I know I can bring in trade, but I have lots of others, so please ask.

Geranium macrophyllum
G. reflexum
G. procurrens
G. phaeum
Lily of the Valley
Geum rivale
Leycesteria formosa
Campanula trachelium
C. porscharskyana
Euphorbia characias seedlings
E. 'Griffithii'
Hieracium maculatum
Various native plants

Hello Judy,
I am interested in:
Campanula trachelium
Leycesteria formosa
C. porscharskyana
Hieracium maculatum
I wish I had a big leaf maple for you. Let me know if there is anything you would like. You probably already have some, but I do have a red huckleberry baby in a pot. I also picked up some extra small cinnamon ferns.

Hello again Judy,
I do have a large big leaf maple seedling in the yard. I don't know yet if it is possible to dig it up. It is near, maybe growing out of, an old stump. I will try to get a better look in the morning.

I will check when I get home, but I should have many big leaf maples. I pull them by the dozens each year. I can't believe I got them all as well as I'm sure there are some in the woods on my property that I'd be glad to bring to the Tapps trade. How many would you like?

The Leycesteria formosa looks interesting.

Dear Judy,

I have hundreds of bigleaf maple seedlings, which I could bring bareroot to the Green Elephant. LMK if you want me to save some as they are going to be covered by a huge compost heap otherwise. These are 6" tall this year, but they will be 5' tall by this time next year; they grow fast. Please post to the Green Elephant String as it will keep it up on the first page of the PNW exchange forum.

Thanks,

Jim

Dear Judy,

Did you get all the maples you wanted at Lake Tapps, or would you like me to save some more for you? How many?

Regards,

Jim
