Chestnuts

Quantity of chestnut stools for sale. These 4yr hybrid chestnuts (Castanea sativa x crenata) that have been cut back to a stool for coppicing purposes. The trees will naturally grow into a multi-stemmed tree but can easily be pruned back to a single stem. Our hybrid chestnuts are natural crosses between the European and Japanese chestnuts and known for their exceptional vigour. There would also be some nut potential though as these are seedling trees the first flowers will not occur for a number of years. 25 stools 100, 50 stools 160, 100 stools 300.
