Description

For those who know trees, the American Chestnut was a legend. It was the most important food and timber trees in the Eastern United States. Virtually destroyed by a bark fungus from the Orient in the early 1900’s, it was one of the largest ecological disasters in American history.

The good news for nature lovers is that the American Chestnut is back! This is a hybrid tree that is bringing back into the public the revered American Chestnut. Virtually disease resistant, this hybrid is a must have for nature lovers, growers, history buffs - anyone who would love to nurture a tree that was once thought extinct!

Plant at least 2 American Chestnuts to facilitate cross pollination.

Successful planting and acclamation

This chestnut tree arrived in perfect condition and well packaged (unlike many other on line nursery shipments). I have 5 decades of gardening experience and followed a proper process to plant this tree. It is doing quite well and generating healthy new growth.

The trees came in perfect condition, no thanks to UPS, good height, hydrated, buds ready to burst! On planting them the roots were awesome, not root bound but lots of well developed roots easy to direct outwards. These were really the best I’ve ever received.

I was worried about potted plants being shipped. I got 2 trees about 40 inches tall in 3 days in perfect condition. They are good looking healthy trees.
