WANTED: Seeds of chinese pistache and/or silver maple?

I have a friend with lots of land that wants to grow a few chinese pistache & silver maple trees. If you have seeds to either of these let me know and we'll see if we can come up with some seeds you might want in trade, or can pay postage.

Thank you!

Roselee, give me a few days and I will check to see if my pistache has mature seeds. Will get back with you.

Additional info

Roselee, I went out today and checked both of my female Chinese pistache trees, and there is not a seed to be found on either of them. Wonder if the birds have already eaten them or if they need to be harvested before they freeze? I have never had one germinate anywhere around these two (they are in different locations) so don't know if the seed are even viable. Anyone out there with more knowledge about them, please chime in.

Carrie, thanks for being willing to check on them. I found where seeds of both trees were offered on eBay so she'll probably go with those.

It brought up something for me to check on next season though. I had never thought of harvesting the seeds.

I live NW of Denton (Texas) and have literally hundreds of little Silver Maple trees sringing up all over my yard in various sizes, anyone that wants them are welcome to come, bring your shovel and plenty of trash bags to put them in. You're welcomed to come get as many as you can haul. Weekends are best for me, Sundays would be better...just email me and we'll set up a time and date.
