According to the USDA here http://saveourcitrus.org/ and in particular this page http://saveourcitrus.org/index.php/grow-citrus-smart it states "If you are thinking about buying a citrus plant, be sure not to move it from quarantined states or territories."
This makes perfect sense.
I live in one of the quarantined states (Arizona) and I am having an email discussion with an online citrus tree vendor and he won't sell and ship me a citrus tree because of that restriction. However, that doesn't make any sense to me. Surely you would be allowed to ship INTO a quarantined area? (from an unquarantined area.)
(I assume that the vendor is not in a quarantined state otherwise he would not be able to ship to anywhere in the country.)
Can anyone confirm if you can bring a citrus tree INTO a quarantined state?
