Bonus find!


5 year old buck +
Spotted this guy growing next to a pin-oak in the shrub strips today.
I love finding volunteer chestnuts any day, this one is about forty feet from a Dunstan so that must be the parent tree.

I don’t want to try and move either one, pin-oak is around 7’ chestnut 4’ both throw monster tap roots …and I’d like to keep them alive.
Going to cage them together in one cage just like they are and trim up the bottom of the chestnut next spring.


Second volunteer chestnut I’ve found this year, also found a volunteer seedling pear in the orchard this spring too.
Wish I had volunteer chestnuts come up.
