Dunstan Chestnuts are the most widely planted chestnuts in America. These blight-resistant trees have produced the best quality nuts by commercial orchardists all over the U.S. for the past 30 years. They bear in only two to four years and produce more high quality nutrition per acre than any oak species or hybrid. In fact, one tree will bear 10 to 20 lbs of nuts by the time it is 10 years old, before most oaks even start to bear. The sweet-tasting nuts are high in carbohydrates and protein, and have no bitter-tasting tannin like oaks, which make them irresistible to deer. They are the best food plot tree, period.
The Sawtooth Oak is a rapidly growing tree that is native to China. It begins to bear in four to six years and its very productive acorn crop is excellent for deer and wildlife. It bears up to 100 lbs/tree at maturity. It has been widely planted because of its prolific and early bearing for an oak tree. The Sawtooth Oak is adapted to a variety of soil conditions.
