The Best Food Plot Tree
The American Chestnut was the primary mast tree for wildlife in the eastern U.S., until it was killed by the Chestnut Blight. The blight resistant Dunstan Chestnut makes possible the replanting of the American hardwood forests with the tree that produces more high quality food per acre than oaks or other trees.
