For centuries, chestnuts were the primary mast food source for North American wildlife. Then came a foreign blight in the 19th century, killing 30 million acres of chestnut forest.
Bred by Dr. Robert Dunstan in the early 1950s, our hybrid combines the blight resistance of Chinese chestnuts with the larger nuts and vigorous growth of American chestnuts.
By planting the Dunstan Chestnut from Chestnut Hill Nursery, you are helping to replenish the ecosystem of this once magnificent forest.
