Could anyone provide a comparison of the Dunstan versus the TN Div. of Forestry's "Hybrid" Chestnut trees?

The Hybrid trees cost $.75 each (100 seedlings) compared to $25 for the potted Dunstan variety.

I've heard both of these varieties are resistant to Blight disease.

I'm planning a new planting for early 2013 and need to make a choice pretty soon.

Thanks for any input.

Good question. Maybe timber value? The potted dunstan trees are already a decent size, so maybe grab a few of those and some from TN forest.

I thought Dunstans were a hybrid chestnut?

They are a cross between American and Chinese.

The price is right on them...We planted a bunch of the Auburn University ones last year. The drought this past summer killed about 1/3 of them, but the ones that made it look strong. I'm tempted to try these, and in 20 years my kids will have a great hunting habitat. Or if it's a bust, oh well. Word is chestnuts are preferred over any other mast crop in the woods. The Dunstan ones had less of a mast crop, better on the timber production. The hybrid ones seem to be a bit bushier, resembling a bradford pear. I'm after the ones with the most production

here is the history on the Dunstan:

In the early 1950s, James Carpentar of Salem, Ohio, discovered a large living American chestnut in a grove of dead and dying trees. A member of the Northern Nut Growers Association, Carpentar was very impressed with the tree as it showed no evidence of blight infection. Over the next several years, he inoculated the tree with active blight spores and mycelia, but failed to induce any infection in the tree.


Carpentar sent budwood to Dr. Robert T. Dunstan, a fellow member of NNGA and well-known plant breeder in Greensboro, N.C. Dunstan grafted the scions onto chestnut rootstock and the trees grew well. He cross-pollinated the American grafts with a mixture of 3 superior USDA released Chinese chestnut selections: "Kuling," "Meiling," and "Nanking."

In 1962, seedling trees from the first cross began to bear. Selecting the individuals with the most hybrid characteristics, Dr. Dunstan crossed them back to the American and Chinese parent trees. The resulting second generation was moved to Alachua in north central Florida, on our nursery property, where the trees have been growing and bearing every year for almost 50 years!

In 1984 we planted a second grove of 500 trees using both grafts and seedling Dunstans, and many are now over 50' tall and 12-16" in diameter. These Dunstan Hybrid Chestnuts show a combination of American and Chinese traits. They are healthy, vigorous, and bear heavily every year. We have chosen several cultivars that have the very best combination of nut and tree characteristics. The Dunstan Chestnuts are the first chestnuts to ever receive U.S. Plant Patents.

The blight-resistant Dunstan Chestnuts make possible the re-establishment of chestnut trees and chestnut orchards in America.


RESISTANT TO CHESTNUT BLIGHT
There has not been a single reported instance of Dunstan Chestnuts dying of blight infection in over 30 years. This includes research and breeding programs as well as the many other locations where the Dunstan Chestnuts have been grown throughout the nation.


Dunstan Chestnuts have been tested for resistance by inoculation with blight. No significant canker formation was observed for 4 years. Limited growth of the blight cankers was seen on only a few trees and, in most cases, the inoculation wound healed completely.


Reports from growers at over 2,000 locations around the U.S., from New England to Michigan, south to Florida and Texas and the Pacific Coast have shown that the Dunstan Chestnuts have excellent survival, growth and nut production in a variety of climates, from Zones 4-9.

Many chestnuts sold in the U.S. are not blight resistant, such as seedling American chestnuts, or European x Japanese hybrids. Blight resistance is extremely important, even in areas that currently do not have blight. Accidental outbreak can destroy susceptible trees. In blighted areas (most of the U.S.), only blight-resistant trees will produce.



From one of their customers:

"We planted 62 Dunstan Chestnuts in 2000, along with 800 Collosal, Marigoule and Maraval chestnuts at our farm in northern Connecticut. We are surrounded by American chestnuts in the nearby forests, both dead trees and suckers resprouting from the roots, so there is a lot of blight. All 800 of the other chestnuts have died, but we have not lost a single Dunstan Chestnut. This year (2010) we harvested 400 lbs of nuts from the 62 Dunstan trees. They produce beautiful, mostly large nuts."

So where can I get some of these Dunstan's? I'm in East TN. I'd prefer to buy some already potted that have a few years of growth on them if possible.

One of the major advantages of the Dunstan Chestnut is they are genetically 15/16ths American Chestnut, and will display some of the important characteristics of the American Chestnut, such as tall growth. This will allow "forests" of chestnuts to be regrown. In essence, they will grow tall enough to compete with other hardwoods for sunlight. The chinese chestnut and most of the other hybrids are lowering growing trees and they must be protected from sunlight competition of other tall-growing trees.

The Dustin is not 15/16ths American Chestnut. The Dustan still has a lot of Chinese traits and the 15/16ths do not. Google the American Chestnut foundation if you want more information on the 15/16ths American Cheatnut.

I can spell it, but my phone auto corrected it, guess I didn't catch it.

If you can read you should be able to figure out the difference between the two.

Interesting. Quality Whitetails had a big article on chestnut tree restoration, and mentioned the Dunstan as one of the varieties of chestnut that is genetically 15/16 American Chestnut.

These trees at Chestnut Tree Hill Farm seem reasonably priced. I'm going to pick up a few as long as they don't run out before the winter is over. I love trying to improve the habitat on our small farm. I'm getting ready to put some extensive efforts in place to start creating more hedge rows and thickets. I'm getting ready to break up three large pastures with hedge rows and various other "nut" trees!!! My grandfather would roll over in his grave if he knew about it....with me, destroying all that good hay!!!

Thanks for the offer that's very kind of you. For now, I think I may try to get some already potted to get a jump on things. I can be fairly impatient and need a little instant gratification every now and then.

Yes. I bought the 25 tree package last winter that included 7 Dunstans. I kept them each in 3 gallon pots until about a month ago when I planted them, all 25 of my trees from Realtree Nursery survived so far. The package also includes persimmons, Sawtooths and crabapples. It is best to pre-order and specify when you want them to ship..

Was wondering if someone could provide an update of their experience with the hybrid chestnut from TN Dept of Forestry? Also, how does the mast production compare to the Dunstan? I really like the lower price of the Hybrid. Am I missing something by not going with it over the Dunstan?

I know nothing about production yet, but I bought (9) Dunstan's last year from a WalMart in Knoxville and they are doing great. I think they were in 3 gallon pots when I bought them and around 4 - 5ft tall. They are growing well is all I know at this point. I need to prune them now, but I need to read up on that. I don't know if you prune them the say as you would a pear or apple tree???

My dunstans have done great even got some production this year. I bought 100 hybrid chestnuts from the state last year. IMO they haven't done well and won't be buying anymore. A lot of them had the tops die out and just didn't put on much growth. Will see how what's left does this spring but I would buy a few dunstans and just plant your own chestnuts after they start producing.

I honestly do not see the hype outside of the timber value. I have several Dunstans, But I am really looking for large production of mast which I heard Dunstans somewhat lack. 8PT what are your observations with production between the Dunstan and a chinese or and American?

Just to add a little more info, I called the state today. They verified that the hybrid is a 50/50 split between American and Chinese. He said they had bought some dunstans a few years back and these are actually just offspring of dunstans they have planted there. I may buy 25 just to give them a try along with buying a few dunstans.

There is a good article in the Tennessee magazine about a group that is trying to get the new chestnuts to 15/16 american and 1/16 Chinese.
