Need fresh bay leaves

Dear fellow gardeners, I am going to post this in several forums, so excuse me if you see it many times. I am looking for somebody who has a bay laurel tree (Laurus nobilis, of the plant family Lauraceae, also known as sweet bay), big and strong enough to spare a few branches for me. I am in search of fresh leaves, not dry ones, and I need more of them than I could afford if I buy fresh ones ( where fresh ones are available, it is going to be a few sprigs in a small plastic case at a prohibitive price). Also, my use for them is not a food use, so I don’t care if the tree is growing next to a highway etc. I am ready to pay reasonably for them (or could swap? What are you looking for?). I am willing to drive a couple of hours to get them. I know that in a mild climate, bay trees grow very well, so they should exist not far to the South from me. I am in Johnson City TN and bay trees do not perform well here. I need the leaves around the last week of April, so there is still time. Thank you very much for your patience, I know it all sounds weird but gardeners are used to everything. I will be checking for replies. Katya.

I know a guy that owns a nursery here in Kennesaw, GA. he gave me a free bag of bay leaves because he has tons of them and was trying to get rid of them. Let me know if you want his name and number...

Yes, please, I would like the name and number even though I am not going to drive there for the leaves - it is longer than 4 hours, not worth it. But a contact couldn't hurt, maybe we could order a shipment from him. Or maybe the florist we are working with here in town could order from him. I would like the name of business (and address?), thank you very much.
