Fruit trees in Arizona at Lowes, Home Depot and nursery are $75 each.
Fruit trees in Tennessee at Lowes and Home Depot are $30 each.
Fruit trees in Mc Minville TN Nursery where trees are grown are $15 each in pots.
I want a pear, apple, peach, pecan and cherry tree in Arizona. I hate to pay $375 in AZ for something I can buy for $75 in TN. I am renting a U Haul box trailer rental is $14 per day returned or $278 one way to Arizona to haul my stuff.
If I buy the trees in TN trailer rental is basically free the money I save on 5 trees pays for the trailer rental one way. Now I am wonder if I can get 7 more trees in the trailer that will pay for my gasoline and motels the drive to Arizona will be free.
Idea #2. I got to thinking a little more about this. 5x8 trailer rental is $14 per day returned. Trees are $15 each in 3 gallon pots. Empty trailer will hold 40 trees sale price $3000. Trees cost $600. Gasoline required to drive 1670 miles is 60 gallons in my Honda CRV at $3.50 per gallon that is $210 one way. Motels for 3 nites Travelcity online $50 each. If a person wanted to do this as a business total cost, trailer rental $84, Motels $300, Gas $420, trees $600, total cost $1404. That is a profit of $1596. for 6 days of driving. There are flea markets every where in AZ booth rental is $20. Sell the trees a little cheaper than Lowes and Home Depot $60, rent a larger 5x10 trailer, profit is $1600. for a weeks work. I am not planning to do this but I just had this idea and thought somone else might be interested.
The nursery told me they have trees that are 2 trees grafted together so 1 tree is self pollenating 2 trees are not rquired to grow fruit. I like this my yard is not large enough for 2 trees each. Growing season is year round my mother grew a pecan tree 25 ft tall in 3 years and it produced 2 bushel baskets of pecans the 3rd year.
