diamond hunter,

If I remember correctly, some of the new hybrids (15/16 American Chestnut) are expected to grow 70-80 feet tall. That's not as tall as some oaks, but given good surrounding management they will produce a viable forest.

I would want both red and black oaks, and I would think seriously about the new Chestnuts that grow tall. Chestnuts are more regular mast producers than oaks.


Are the new chestnut trees your speaking of the ones from the state?

I'm not sure what the state is offering chestnut-wise.

Do an internet search for Dunstan Chestnuts. They sell them out of Florida, but occasionally you can find them locally. Walmart has even had them on occasion.

Where are you all getting oaks and what's a good price?
