I have a chance to purchase some contanier sized dunstand chestnuts at $30 each (yep they are pretty proud of them I guess). Trees are roughly 4' tall from native nursery at my local wal-mart. I hear once they produce nuts that the deer love them. I have some areas where I can plant them in full sun and protect them from deer browse - but are theywort it? Iaready have some apples just starting to produce fruit and some oaks and beech for hard mast and Iamsurroundedby cornand soybean production. I like the idea of planting someting that will feed the deer far beyond once I am gone, but I can get 100 bare root saplings from my DNR for $30! Does anyone out here have any exp with these trees and when they will actually begin to produce?
