Where To Get Blight-Resistant Dunstan Chestnut Tree?

Dunstan blight resistant

Q: Do you know where I can purchase a large blight-resistant Dunstan chestnut tree?

A: I don’t believe there is such a tree on the market for regular folks. There is no true “Dunstan” tree. The ones that are sold as “Dunstan” came from seeds collected in a small plot of Chinese chestnuts that surrounded a supposedly blight-resistant American chestnut. As such, these “Dunstan” chestnut trees grown from seed vary greatly. Further, the large tree you want would be snapped up by landscapers long before homeowners could buy one.
