Tel, thanks for the link. If the Americans are sweeter, then maybe I should be looking at those. It looks like most of the chestnut trees form that grower are for the PNW. Maybe the Connecticut variety would work. I'll do more investigating on the Americans.

if you're in the historical range of American chestnuts, that species won't work for you. they won't grow to maturity before blight gets them.
if you get a chance check out badgerset. their trees do not get blight!
yes i am doing the same thing. i haven't picked a site yet and havent decided if i have spaces for walnuts and chestnuts. i am def. planning on hazels though.
