Hey guys, reading the other post reminded me to let anyone who might be interested in chestnut trees that I found a good local source outside of Wallyworld.

He had quite a few 3yr trees and 1 yr old trees. The 3yr olds were about 1 inch caliper and about 8-9 ft. Looked like some had chestnuts on them last year. They are rootmaker trees, look really good. I have no dog in the hunt, I just wanted to pass this along to whomever might be looking for some trees.

Call Dave at 615-841-3664, the chestnuts are not listed on his web site yet.(leave a message, he will get back with you)

He also has grafted persimmons and paw-paws.

The 1yr trees (4ft or so) I think were $15.00, the three yr (9 ft or so inch caliper) were $45.00.

Just a FYI, Walmart is selling the Dunstans this year for $35.00 I think, and they are a lot smaller trees.

Was able to get up to Rock Bridge Trees this Saturday and get my dozen chestnut trees. They are in Root-trapper bags, trees look great and had nice visit with Dave.

No nonsense gentleman, took time to talk trees with me and showed me the stock he has on hand.

I will be going back for some of his persimmons later in the year, his grafted northern variety may be just what I am looking for. I may do some in larger Air Pots at my house till I get them bigger and watering is not such a problem as it would be on my place where they will wind up. I will have my hands full babying the chestnuts this summer, and having the persimmons close at hand will make them easier to look after, plus they are smaller, and I may even keep them two years in the air pots.

Dave has a lot of one year old chestnut trees that look great, he is doing this right. For those looking for quick results on hard mast, this is a find.

He is a good guy. He has three types of persimmons. One drops in September, one in October, and one in November.

They are 15 dollars for the one year old trees. They were about 5' tall when i picked them up. It is very close to Gallatin.

Chestnut trees are very special.

On one hand, it made me feel great to start seed and "pamper" them for 15 months. Finally planting them on my farm was an awesome feeling. If I add the special soils, rootmaker systems, plant lights, winter green house heating, and my time for daily checks.... I'm sure my cost per tree was pretty high....

So on the other hand, I believe $15 is well worth someone else preparing them for planting with the same loving care and results.
