I'm looking to add 2 chestnut trees and cannot find any that aren't mail order. Lowe's, Home Depot and Walmart don't carry them. Anyone know where I can just go and pick 2 up?
Thanks cspot. That's not too close, though.
Thank you, RGrizzzz. I already have them on my property, I just want to add a couple young trees to the mix.Personally, I'd pull the trigger on something like this, if you can't find any local. A 4-6' tree is probably two years old. Something like this is a year old.
You likely want more than 2, since they'll need to cross pollinate. If something happens to one, you'll be waiting a bit for another one to catch up.
This month's issue of Fur, Fish and Game (4/19) has a reader letter (which refers back to another reader letter in the 2/19 issue) in which the reader notes "It is also necessary to protect the saplings for 10 years to prevent mice and rabbits gnawing the lower bark, deer rubbing the higher bark and eating the buds."
