Why plant School House Chestnut Treeling?

In 1904, a fungus was introduced in the United States called Cryphonectria parasitica, or more commonly known: chestnut blight fungus. Within decades, this fungus decimated our native, American Chestnut populations. Three species: American Chestnut, Allegheny Chinkapin, and Ozark Chinkapin, were almost wiped from existence because of a fungus. ALMOST. Enter the School House Chestnut - or Castanea pumila var. ozarkensis. The Ozark Chinkapin has risen from the theoretical ashes and, with it, brought their sweet-tasting and healthy little treats for us to enjoy!

Our chestnuts are not GMO, Genetically Modified Organisms, which are created in a laboratory.

How Does Shipping Work?

Size Small, Medium, and Large plants (our Treelings, Shrubs, Bushes, and Perennials) will be shipped directly to your home by a common carrier. Ships in a plant-safe designed box within 7-12 business days.

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
