Welcome to the scion exchange forum. Please use the following guidelines to post your requests:

1) Titles: if you are looking for something in particular, start your post title with the word WANT. If you have something you want to share, start your post with the word HAVE.

2) Please respect phytosanitary regulations and other govt regulations. That means do not offer up patented varieties, and do not trade things across illegal boundaries.

3) Please note special restrictions on citrus: absolutely no citrus trading unless you have a tree that is inspected by Ag. Also note that Citrus is quarantined in the south. Greenwood should not travel from Southern California to Northern California unless it's been soaked in a strong pesticide.

4) By using this forum, you agree to take responsibility for any of your actions, and not hold the Cloudforest or any of its founders liable for your actions, Do not use the Cloudforest to trade scion wood illegally.

I would disagree with item 3, I'm pretty sure you can't move citrus scions legally at all even if it is ag inspected. No matter what it has been soaked in. The only "legit" place for citrus scions in california is the CCPP (http://ccpp.ucr.edu/). I could be wrong though.
There may be some work arounds like if you just had scions shipped to you from CCPP you could probably resend them to others and be ok.

Jason, you're not quite correct. Some CRFG members have paid the $30 annual fee from the Ag. Dept. to have their trees inspected for disease, and as such are allowed to distribute their scions. If you care to distribute scion wood, you can do so but yes, you have to have your tree inspected and tagged. My rule is simple: don't trade citrus unless you have one of these permits.

Axel, I did not realize the inspection fee was so small. Is that $30 for one tree or all that you might have ? Over here we are clean, have never seen any disease, but better safe then sorry and best to comply within reason.

So does this mean, that the CRFG exchanges no longer offer Citrus Scion wood ?

Who do you apply to?

Axel,

Is this for budwood only, or would other propagative materials be welcome?

Axel,
I've been told that it's difficult to find the true Berner Rosen. Knowing that you love this apple, I wanted to inquire from you. My Berner Rosen came to me spring 2013, as a benchgraft from Wagon Wheel Orchard, which was getting their scion wood from the last Nick Botner had for sale. Is my tree likely the real deal? If not, does the germplasm repository in Geneva have the genuine article?

Thanks,
Evan

Here in the Los Angeles area our CRFG chapters didn't allow citrus wood at the exchanges this year. I'm glad to hear there are some CRFG members who have been inspected and are allowed to pass on budwood. I'd sure like to know how to contact some of them, as my budding skills are just developing and I'd like to find some of the interesting varieties that aren't available at local nurseries.

I have a question on my citrus in Brazil. As US Ag cannot inspect my trees, if it is inspected here in Brazil and obtains phylo-sanitary clearance, can it be exported?
