Ellis' concurrent AVL insertion algorithm<sup>1</sup>is discussed in this correspondence. We note that obtaining a block of storage for the new AVL leaf may become a serial bottleneck for the entire insertion algorithm. We indicate a potential solution and refer the reader to another paper  in which the full details are given.
