Chinese Chestnut Tree


The Chinese chestnut tree is not only resistant to blight but produces healthy, sweet, delicious nuts. Moreover, its structure is more wide and spreading compared to the American chestnut which is upright. Consequently, it has a dense canopy that can provide shade and relief in hot dry climates.
