  • Uses: Large, parkland and avenue trees
  • Good Points: Spring flowering and Autumn nuts
  • Uses: Parkland, avenues, shade trees for stock
  • Growth: Up to 70cm p.a. Tap-rooted and so needs deep soil

What size Chestnut trees should I buy?

  • If you are not in a hurry to get a full sized Chestnut tree, we recommend starting with the smaller 6/8cm girth size.
  • If you are in a hurry and need instant impact, then go for the 8/10cm girth size.

Standard trees are measured by their girth 1 metre above the ground, and young saplings are measured by height.
So, a 6/8cm Standard Chestnut tree is much bigger than a 60/80cm Chestnut sapling tree or hedge plant.
If a tree is available in both sizes, it will be noted in the product description.

Your Chestnut trees are delivered by mail order direct from our nursery, along with expert advice, friendly support, plus our bareroot Guarantee, so you can give them a whirl with complete confidence.
