What wonderful work you are doing.
When you guys want volunteers to plant 🌱 baby chestnut 🌰 trees let me know. I will plant in my area and have friends that would love to volunteer
I pray they all will be successfully planted
What do you with with all the nuts?
Where can I get established American chestnut seedlings 🌱 for my property?
What do you do with them after you harvest them? I love to eat them but the worms bear me to them most of the time
Wish I was closer I would love to help .
Where can I purchase chestnut trees I live in ohio harrison county. I have seventy acres and would love to start Chestnuts in this area. Also is this a club that I can join
We want some seedlings to plant in Bedford pa
Send me a few, I've got 5 Acers in Ga.
Do the worms kill the chestnut. Most I found last year had worm holes in the shells or seed part before opening. Dod biopsy on one and saw the little white worm. Made it to the good part. Roasting takes care of them foe eating but will they still grow ??
