  American Chestnut Tree




 
Alternative Views:


The American Chestnut trees can still be found growing in small clusters and  sometimes the groves grow in isolated locations throughout the United States. The remaining groves of American Chestnuts evolved their genetic immunity to the disease that ravaged native trees last century. Very few people today are left that can remember  when their parents gathered many bucket loads of this hardy nut that became part of the American culture. The rediscovered nuts that were planted to form our inventory from the immune remnants of the  American Chestnuts hopefully will reestablish Chestnuts again.

  • Green Thumb Chestnut
The world's most famous chestnut tree, the American Chestnut Tree, that grew in early America was the native chestnut which settlers treasured for high quality lumber and the incomparable sweet flavor of the nuts that covered the forest floor. American Chestnuts usually grow in groups of two, but each pod could contain three or more nuts. The leaves of the American Chestnut are long, serrated, and glossy. The chestnut seedling from the American Chestnut tree is easy to sprout and to grow your own trees from the seed.

The chestnut crop of the early American Chestnut Tree almost disappeared from the earth a century ago from a blight. Many grandparents claim that the original American Chestnut, which is today almost extinct was the best nut ever, but few people today can verify this fact by tasting, because the blight that almost exterminated this native tree happened 75 years ago.

not sure if they will survive April 26, 2016
Reviewer: Amjad A from Woodland park, NJ United States  
the two trees that I bought came in with no leaves and can't tell if the root are still alive or not. I put them in a container with top soil hopping they will survive.

never received April 23, 2016
Reviewer: william spear from mt dora, FL United States  
never received product. I had to call numerous times and send several emails to finally receive money back. the rep I spoke to made it sound like i was trying to get away with something and commented that people try to get something for free all the time.Poor attitude.  I had to send pictures of the other 4 trees I had already planted. left a bad taste in my mouth. will think long and hard about purchasing with your company again. In the mean time I love chestnuts and was excited to plant the tree. Already dug the hole.Who cares?

Wish They Were Bigger April 15, 2016
Reviewer: Leo G. from Waupaca, WI United States  
One to Two feet trees REALLY seem small and they are only half the width of a pencil.  I hope they survive.  FAST shipping and delivery!
