There are tons of these near me, they are invasive and I'm tight with one of the head park rangers and he has said I can collect these all I want! If any of you are interested let me know and I'll try to grab some nice ones this spring and offer them up to the study group...

Real funny Sorce, I'll get right on that... I got a little excited there I'll admit, but seriously I pull Amour seedlings out of pots that they are not supposed to be in and just toss them out...

I picked up one of these at the garden centre not long ago. It was dug out of what looked like clay, wrapped in burlap, shoved in a pot and covered with mulch. I got it for $5 and it has a trunk with about a 3in diameter. I pulled it out of the pot, took off the burlap, hand picked a few big chunks of clay out without disturbing the roots too much and then repotted in this giant thing (the best pot I had to use without chopping off a ton of roots at this time of year).

If it survives the winter and spends a few years recovering I think it will look great after I take the height down a bit more.

Nice little start Jlush. Love to see it in leaf. If you have a camera that shoots that fast! How long is your growing season up there?  3, maybe four seconds!  ;)

Really nice Amurs. I am considering on getting one. What can of pruning techniques can you apply. I'm only familiar with pruning my maple.

Yes, I am looking forward to seeing how it survives the winter. This is my first zone 3 winter, so it could be interesting! In the future I plan on building a greenhouse, but it's not going to happen this season!
