Excellent. Yrs ago I found a place in Ohio to order trees from a blight resistant stand but did not have the property to plant them. I remember as boy being sent to give limbs from dead chestnuts to use and fence bracing. The chestnut was great value to the early poineers.

We planted 25 of them several years ago. Only two lived and are now about 15 feet high and are beautiful trees.
