Fine by me!
I could dig out some, but getting a huge number would be difficult!
Thanks! If you can get a conservation proposal in time for the next ICN conference (see post #7) that would be excellent - waiting till 2030 would...

Manchurian Fir (Abies holophylla) is very hardy (to -40° or -50°) and grows reasonably fast with summer heat; grows to over 40 m tall in the wild.
