I ordered 2 lbs of nuts from last year, I have about 20 or so trees I grew over the last yr in pots that I transplant to their final destination soon. I think they are a hybrid but not sure if they are Dunstan.

Consider the Tennessee Department of Forestry hybrid Chestnut seelings. I think you will find they are a lot like the Dunstan. Dunstan is a patented name that can't be used by others. It's kind of like buying generic versus brand name.

I did that last year ordered a hundred. There survival rate was maybe 25% to this point. Many had the tops die but the bottom branches still are alive. I planted a 100 sawtooth with them alternating every other tree and got 90% survival out of the sawtooth so I'm not big on the TN forestry chestnuts. The dunstans have done good so I guess I'll wait till next year to plant what mine produce again. I need to many to pay 25$ a tree... Lol

Spend your time where you get the most return on it...
