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.

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.

5 of 5 Healthy and safe June 3, 2021
Reviewer: Rob from Adirondacks NY  
Delivered with good packaging and roots packed in gel medium to keep moist. Trees looked healthy and robust and had small buds. Planted in the proper well drained soul. We will see how they resist blight over the next many years. I suspect these trees were started from the FDR state park stand in found in GA 2006 but can't be sure. Their description certainty reads that way. Either way look very healthy. Been buying from Tyty for years with no problems.

5 of 5 New Chestnut Tree Purchase May 15, 2021
Reviewer: Michael Kelly  
We now have two new American Chestnut Trees on our property, augmenting two we purchased from Ty Ty two years ago.  Despite one hiccup, everything worked out perfectly.  The hiccup was that in shipping, both of the first trees had broken in half.  I emailed customer care pictures of the unfortunate trees, and they had replacements on our doorstep in a little over a week.  I'm completely satisfied with the transaction, and thank Ty Ty for taking good care of us.

Reviewer: KIMBERLY BRUMM  
Trees arrived on the day indicated.
Planted the next day and they were wrapped securely and in great shape.  I look forward to these trees flourishing.  I have already recommended the nursery to others.  Thank you.
