  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.

Good looking trees October 7, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Dingmans Ferry, PA United States  
Trees looked in excellent shape, despite battered box. I ordered the largest size and they were smaller than I would have hoped for, given the price.

trees a little smaller than expected March 17, 2014
Reviewer: douglas bradbury from Coral Gables, FL United States  
the trees came on time. We ordered them  as a gift for a friend. We decided to get two larger trees of the 3-4ft size  instead of 4 of the smaller 2-3 ft ones.  But our friend said that the 2 trees she received were 32 inches from the bottom of the root ball to the tip so we were a little disappointed that we did not get the size we expected according to the order.
