I've had a few questions recently about when volunteers should expect to receive trees.
In short, a link will be sent to all participants during the fall or early winter (November-ish 2022), allowing volunteers to provide details about their rough geographic location and the number of trees they hope to adopt/host. That link will also be added to this profile once it goes live.
In order of registration, volunteers in our research area should expect to be contacted over the winter to coordinate delivery of their tree(s). The first trees will be distributed in late spring of 2023, and new trees will be distributed each year thereafter around that time of year. The number of trees available should increase each year as our breeding trees grow larger and produce more seed, but the first distribution (2023) will include only a couple dozen trees.
As casualties are expected to be high in early years, priority will be given in later years to those who need to replace dead trees.
