Chestnut Tree Seedlings

We Do Not Ship Chestnut Trees. You will not be refunded in full if expect shipping of chestnut trees.
We had a record-breaking chestnut harvest at Red Fern Farm September-October 2021, following two consecutive years of crop failure. In addition to the old standards, we will be offering seedlings of a number of our own outstanding trees. For some of these, this will be the first time they will be offered to the public, and quantities are very limited. If you are interested in any of these new offerings you should order promptly to avoid disappointment.
We do have seedlings of some of the very best cultivars available. Although “open pollinated”, their most likely pollenizers are other good Chinese cultivars. This greatly increases the likelihood that the seedlings will be as good or even better than their parents. We fully expect that many new, superior cultivars will result form these seedlings.
The varieties we have for sell below have brief descriptions of the parent trees. These seedling trees are for pick up early summer through August 31. They are in 9 inch tall pots. We have no bare-rooted chestnut trees available for shipping. Order early to reserve your trees.
Pot sizes: We offer some of our chestnuts in smaller, narrower pots. These pots are still 9 inches tall for excellent root development, but are only 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 inches square at the top instead of 4 x 4 inches square like our medium size pots. This should allow the roots to fill in the smaller pots sooner and thus the trees will be ready to leave our nursery earlier in the summer. It also means the pots will dry out quicker and the tops can quickly out grow the capacity of the pots. The chestnut trees grown in these smaller pots will need to be picked up from our nursery by June 31.
We offer quantity discounts when you order the same variety of chestnuts. You cannot combine orders of different varieties to reach a discount price. Example 60 Mossbarger and 60 Qing would cost you the 10 – 99 price for each, not the 100 or more price for each.
We require a 25% deposit to reserve your trees. This deposit is lost if you cancel your order 30 days or less before the deadline of picking up your trees (even if we can find new customers for the trees). If you cancel more than 30 days before the deadline and we can find a new purchaser for your trees, we will charge only a 10% restocking fee. The earlier you cancel or change the order, the easier it is for us to find new customers and the less we will charge you for changing your order.
