Does anyone have chestnuts growing in places where you normally have temperatures as low as -20F or colder?? How old are the trees and how well do they produce nuts? Do you see any winter kill? I'm in Southwest Wisconsin driftless area and we usually have lows of -20 or colder every winter and I'm wondering how chestnuts will do around here. I've planted several hundred that I grew from seed from Chestnut Ridge of Pike County (Illinois). They are "Dunstan" chestnuts. Anyone with experience growing chestnuts in northern climate I'd be interested to hear what you have to say.
