    Went to Walmart on Wednesday started looking at trees maybe to get a pin oak or similar. Happened upon a couple skids of trees that didn't look familiar to me. Dunston chestnut trees! I can't believe Walmart has them. Been looking for years to get some. I can never get them at rural king,always gone. I got 2 chestnut and 2 persimmons, about $35 apiece. Dry Ridge Walmart.

    I bought about 8 two years ago. Deer ate four of them into the ground. Make sure you protect them from deer while they are small.

    Yup . Me too. I just put a 4” drain tile tube (3ft long) around the 5 ft trees thinking they were big enough to only have to worry about rubbing. The deer still bit the dang tree in half above the tube then pulled the tube off and bit them in half again.

    The Dunston Chestnuts I have planted at the back of the farm I put 5 foot tall cages around when I planted them. Last year the deer broke the tops on two of them when they first leafed out but didnt realy harm them. Sunday I put extentention on the top of the original cages. Now the cages are 7 feet tall. The ones I have planted at the house I have nothing around to protect them and they are doing good they even bloomed last year but didnt make.

    Thanks for the heads up I just bought six trees. They had them priced at $35 for the smaller 5 ft trees which I bought four of and $49 for 7 foot trees that I bought two of
