  • Realtree Nursery Dunstan Chestnut Tree




The American chestnut was once the most common tree in eastern North America and the most important source of mast for game and wildlife until it was killed by the chestnut blight.  Realtree Nursery’s blight-resistant Dunstan Chestnut ™ makes possible the replanting of the American hardwood forests with the tree that produces more high quality food per acre than oaks or other trees. Dunstan Chestnut trees are recognized as the best food plot tree for attracting deer and wildlife.

  • are proven resistant to chestnut blight for over 30 years.
  • grow from Michigan to Florida (Zones 4-9).
