I planted 10 about 8-10 years ago on a ridge after a tornado went thru and deer wear them out. It’s a cross between the wild chestnuts the blight wiped out and a Chinese to make them blight resistant. Actually the guy that came up with the cross was from Greensboro NC in the 50’s or 60’s. Mine are about 30’ tall and are now bearing pretty heavy. If you are looking for a tree that provides excellent mass during bow season and deer will walk by everything to eat, give them a try. They will begin to bear around 6 years and just get better and better.
