Fall is an excellent time to plant. Trees slow down and go dormant in the fall even without leaves they continue to root in during the winter as long as the ground is not frozen. Dormant trees do require less water.
The young trees will become acclimated and actually come out stronger in the spring.


To order older trees contact us directly: CHESTNUT HILL OUTDOORS


Our next shipping season will begin towards the end of January.

Tentative Spring Shipping Schedule *Note all 1yr old trees are shipped bareroot and dormant.

Spring Planting Instructions

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.
