The Q&A Archives: Populus Balsamifera (Balm Of Gilead)

Question: I would like to obtain the buds and bark from a Populus
balsamifera (Balm of Gilead); it may seem out of season
in Ohio for the buds, however I have a special project I
am working on and would like to obtain these as soon as
possible. Do you know who might have these that I could
send for them? We have a very small yard and don't have
room for very many trees. We do have a few dwarf fruit
trees; am not at this time wanting to plant this tree
unless it is a small tree when it matures. I need the
buds for something other than planting within 4 weeks.

Answer: You might try contacting the following nursery which offers the plant in its catalog, perhaps they could help in some way:

Forestfarm, 990 Tetherow Road, Williams, OR USA 97544-9599
Telephone 541-846-7269
