Striferitus,

Do you have permission to collect it? It sounds as if there may be some conflict. Now is not the ideal time to collect it anyway.

You should only collect a tree if it has something to offer that you cannot get at a nursery. Take a look in the gallery at the Pine Joe got for $5.00 and ask yourself if this tree really worth the effort?
