Chestnut Oak Seedlings Description

Chestnut Oak Tree Seedlings


The Chestnut Oak Tree, also known as Castanea, is a  deciduous tree in the beech family Fagaceae.

The Chestnut Tree is famous for the nuts it produces. This tree is native to temperate climates of the Northern Hemisphere. Chestnut Oak Tree Seedlings should be cultivated for their beauty and prominence in your garden landscape.


Care and Maintenance

Transplant your Chestnut Oak Tree plants in mid-May after a heavy frost. To "harden" off the seedlings, place them in the sun and brisk winds. When planting your Chestnut Oak Tree Seedlings, dig a hole two times as large as the root ball and remove any of the nutshells attached to the root, to keep animals from pulling up the seedlings for their nuts. Chestnut Oak Tree Seedlings prefer well-drained, acidic soil. Space seedlings 30 to 40 feet apart to allow plenty of room for its roots to establish and for the tree to grow.


Place 2 –foot tall tree shelters around your Chestnut Oak Tree Seedlings, tree shelters made out of wire cages and one-quarter-inch hardware cloth. Sink the protection at least 2 to 4 inches into the ground around the seedlings, then place 4- to 5-foot tall wire cages around the tree shelter and stake them in place to keep rodents and deer. Give your Chestnut Oak Tree Seedlings plenty of water and clear of weeds. Do not fertilize transplanted seedlings in their first year unless there is a problem. For example: if your Chestnut Tree's leaves turn yellow before the beginning of August, give it some fertilizer with nitrogen. Your Chestnut Tree will bear Chestnut fruit and germinate upon falling to the ground in the autumn. The superior American chestnuts are usually very small but sweet-tasting with easy-to-remove shells.

 With proper planning and luck, your Chestnut Tree Seedling will grow healthy and strong, bearing delicious nuts for roasting. In addition, it will provide cooling shade in the summer and lovely changes in foliage in the autumn. Finally, the nuts are a holiday favorite you can share with friends and family.
