    How to tell a tree collected in autumn has survived?

    As mentioned before. A deciduous tree that is showing wrinkled branches and where the buds loose their shine or even start to drop off, will most likely not make it. EVergreens where the heart of clusters of needles turnbrown or that go yellow often are not going to make it.

    Go back to where the consumers are. They are key to change (besides policies). Guess a hefty import fee for products not produced under specific environmental cirteria might make them change. Then again. that might also come to show why things are cheap right now.
