Do you realize that the ground in China is different than in usa and that could bear alot on how well the tree does and its make up. I would rather have the tree parts from China than La.

Though soil conditions may affect the general growth of the tree and possibly the concentrations of Camptothecin that would be found in the leaves and bark if the tree is grown in less than optimal conditions, I don't think anyone has done any research to determine if there is a difference in the leaf/bark harvest in Louisiana grown Happy Trees versus China grown trees. I will have to plead ignorance as to the possible effects of soil and growth conditions for Camptothecin levels in the Happy Tree.

Thanks for your interest and your comment!
