    Evodia (tetradium) daniellii - Bee Bee Tree

    Little is known about its
    impact on the environment,
    but it is considered a “watch
    list species” because it shows
    invasive tendencies in certain
    situations.

    In a well moisture ground they will take off.
    In a dry or drought condition they cannot grow to 1 foot if not water well.
    I have 2 trees to compare them. The 1 not watering is dying after 3 years.
    The one water is over 15' now. Do a search for the treelings sold here. I got
    the seeds from FL on ebay.
    Don't mix foreign bees into a virgin hive. She might get balled 100% of the time! When will you ever learn, huh?

    Do a search of this site. I could swear that earlier in the year Oddfrank was selling them.
    I have been wrong before though.

    I have some seeds from Salem, Ma, but I left them at my parents' (an hour drive). I could sell them to pay for shipping, or trade. They need to be stratified (put in a refrigerator for a few months). I collected them last year. I could go back to the tree sometime.

    Thanks for the reply folks, I have tried seeds but have not had much success. Odfrank we can have spells down to about 5 degrees early in the morning but most of the winter mornings not much blow 32 degrees. I was hoping to find some young trees that I could get into the ground come spring.

    I have an unlimited seeded source. If you soak 10,000 seeds, mix them in sand, and properly store them in a refrigerator for 6 months, you should get >100 to germinate. I refrigerated mine for 4 months, and I got decent but low germination.

    they like moisture, but they will die if their feet get wet. most of mine have died from just our short but heavy rain season.

    So they don't like wet feet, eh. Then you have to
    make a raised bed to plant them in. Once established they can
    withstand the frosts too. It has been frosty since after the rains here.
    The 15' tall tree is still holding but losing all its leaves so far. We'll see how it
    will grow in the Spring time.

    Well, 8 of the 5 bee bee trees I got from Odfrank have shoots so all is well so far. I ordered 5 but altogether I got 9.
    Thanks to Odfrank.

    8 of 5 is pretty good success.

    I ordered some from odfrank as well. I don't remember how many I ordered, but I got more than I paid for.

    They were delivered on a Monday, which means they spent all weekend at the post office. The roots were a little dried out when I got them. I opened them up and wrapped the root in a wet paper towel for about a week. I then "hilled" them out in my garden. We had a frost after they had put out and I forgot to cover them up and the frost knocked the leaves off all of them. Then we had 2 nights in the mid 20's, but I covered them up that time. They put back out and we had another cold night a day or two ago, and I remembered to cover them up again, so maybe they'll live.


    In summary, odfrank sends out some tough trees. I've tried to kill them at least twice in the 2 months that I've had them, and they are still alive in spite of my lack of attention. I still have to transplant them to their final planting site. I need to get on that ASAP. I am going to put tree tubes on them as well.

    NO, they should have gone to the final site on 1st planting. You are like Charlie, trying too hard too kill them.

    Don't you know trees like to get established as soon as possible. Moved them 3 times and they will die. Let nature take
    its course at the new final location before any new leaves come out. When the leaves are popping out that means the roots are also
    being established. They don't like moving to restart all over at the new location again.

    It was way too wet then to plant them where they will wind up.
