I looks like they have been pruned. How long have you owned the property.

Thank you, we will send a sample and photos in for identification.

Yes, the lower limbs have been pruned from these trees.

Sorry for the confusion, this property belongs to a client, who has owned the property over 30 years. After speaking with the property owner, we think her deceased husband may have planted these trees as a project in the 1990's.

The trees are growing in an area designated for clear cutting. Thankfully, we found them and established a "no-entry" area for the loggers. The land owner agreed to allow us access to the nuts as they mature.

Label me Jealous. \:\) What a great find. With the deceased husband of land-owner planting them, I would assume they are some sort of geneticly altered chestnut.

Wouldn't it be nice to have him here to answer some questions. Don't you know he would be excited to know a group of hunters are excited about discovering his prize.

Thanks for sharing.

Yes indeed; his wife is absolutely thrilled by our excitement. We were very fortunate to find these trees. The area doesn't have many valuable timber trees, mainly pulp trees. Thankfully, we inspected the area before simply marking the boundaries!

We have had various opinions on the actual identification, so we are sending a sample in to the ACF for help.

I hunt a farm in Jackson County that has an isolated hollow that has a few chestnut trees on it, I am going to check them out closely this weekend. I will post some pictures next week. I've hunted and killed many deer near these trees, but never even thought that they may be Americans.
