Collecting season 2010

Post  Sebastijan Sandev on Mon Jan 25, 2010 8:05 pm





Collecting season has started at the seaside with Carpinus orientalis. This first one is a monster. At last...we started to do some digging.
Inland, it is still very cold, everything is frozen and under the snow.

For detailed report, please check:

Nice find. But to paraphrase Roy Schneider in the movie Jaws - "You're going to need a bigger pot." Surprised Surprised Laughing

You might want to learn the language first, pal. Housing is secondary.. Razz

Terrific tree. I used to spend my summers in Opatija btw., with my parents.

I will briefly visit Split, Croatia in May, but doubt US customs will take kindly to trying to bring that home... I may end up on the 'no fly' list! Cool

Let me help you with some answers...
Prices of houses or apartments in Cro are very much similar to the rest of European Union, that means expensive!!! From the bottom of 1200€, middle value is 2000-2200 up to 5000€ in Dubrovnik, for example.
Croatia IS a paradise for bonsai raw material but, it is not so easy to find locations with such a good trees. We, a few of my friends and I, we are putting a lot of effort in this, and eventualy, it works. The terrain can be very harsh with lot of rocks and stones, what makes digging extremely difficult.
Bottom line, I'm happy you like my trees. I will show you some more ThumbsUp

Where do you get the artwork you add to your page? As a Science Fiction Fantasy fan, it is awesome! Watch out for the tree guy at the beginning of several of your links, Tony Tickle and his cohorts might try to Yamadori him! Laughing

Great trees, too!

Are you kidding?!
Where I live on the Swedish west coast, a decent house is at least 200 000 Euro. You might find one around 100 000E but then there's probably a lot of work to do on it.
Does this mean that I can get 40 decent houses in croatia for the price of one in Sweden?! What am I doing here? Sad

Great tree by the way, it's gonna be a killer some day!!!

Mebbe Sebastijan is talking about monthly rent costs.

If not, I'm selling up here and heading over there.

What are whisky prices like Sebastijan? And can I get Marmite there?

Dear Henrik!
The prices that I wrote are for square meter. So, one square meter of apartement in Zagreb is cca 2000€. That means that for 50 m2 in center of Zagreb you have to pay 100 000€. Houses are cheaper. At least outside of center Zagreb. So you can find m2 for 1000 or 1200€. For a decent house you have to spend at least 100 000 up to 200 000€. The closer it is to the Center of town, the more expensive it is.
You got me wrong!
Very Happy

Fiona, whisky is probably more expensive than in rest of Europe. Thats because we have the most expensive food costs per month in whole Europe. That is sad.
Cheap Johny Walker is probably 150kn and that is cca 25-28$.

you think thats expensive.... where i live the AVERAGE price is about 650,000 EURO (1million CAD)... and im young... so i'm basically growing up knowing i cannot live in the city i grew up in. Oh and this is Vancouver BC Canada

oh and also very nice yamadori findings! you inspire me to do the same here, but i am still fighting the dilemma of collecting (and getting permissions) as all of the land here is parks or crown land.

When you see yamadoris like this on web you think that it is easy to find it because Croatia is yamadori heaven. I am collecting here for 8 years and I must say it is totally wrong. It is very hard to find tree like in every other country, especially if you are searching for good quality. Many areas are under protection (national parks ...), and even worse there are many mine fields and mine suspicious areas, as you can see on the map from Croatian Mine Action Centre - https://misportal.hcr.hr

That's a very good and sobering point. True in most places, but the extent of the undocumented minefields is really tragic.

The veneration of collecting ancient specimens certainly causes me mixed feelings. They are a finite resource like pretty much everything on this planet.

affraid I can see how that would be a problem, Marija! The worst we have to deal with is the occasional irate sheep.

Oh, and farmers with shotguns.

And big dogs.

And rabbit poo.

And falling hundreds of feet onto sharp rocks.

Thought so Wink
A work mate of mine bought a piece of land for about 10 000E in bosnia last year, is bosnia cheaper?
Hmm springs to mind that mine fields might be an issue to consider there as well...
