Castanea Dentata x Mollissima - Hybrid American Chestnut tree is the result in the search for a blight-resistant chestnut through a breeding program for eventual reforestation. Because the original American Chestnut was near extinction due to a fatal, quick spreading fungal infection in the 1950's, this hybrid was created to not only be more disease hardy but keep all the characteristics of the original chestnut tree.

Due to California Department of Agriculture, we cannot ship this item to the state of California.
Came healthy and well packaged except for some soil spilling.
I ordered 2 trees, both came in over 6 ft tall and fully leafed out. I had questions on how to handle them and J Allen Selby got right back to me with helpful info. The quality seems great, matched the description and met my expectations.
Came in a 2 gallon pot and was around 2-1/2 feet tall and well wrapped. It is healthy and vigorous and I look forward to planting and see it grow.
Worked with me to coordinate ship dates, very responsive to email, packaged very well, trees were in very good condition. Will order from again and highly recommend.
