Topic tags/keywords: boxwood question

Hi guys,
I am a chess set restorer by trade, I need some European boxwood. The stuff I see online is frankly not very good, so if any one sees or comes across a boxwood tree(s) being cut or knows of someone with some to spare I would be grateful for a tip/contact.
I have money and will cut/clear/haul.

Thanks Big Yin, I’ll email them.
I should have said, I’m in the States now.

Have your say...
