Unfortunately I live in suburbia and my neighbor has a tree that is the culprit so I am legally bound to not chop his tree down
I would really like to avoid heavy chemical applications.   I will have to look into the tea to see what is the best components to help deal with rust.

I have a Honeycrisp apple tree that has been devestated the last couple years by Cedar Apple Rust.  The first couple years I seemed to have some luck with a spray and was able to get some delicious apples.  Has anyone had any luck with specific fungicide sprays?  Unfortunately if I can't get the tree to be healthy in 2019 I will remove for a more resistant variety or completely different fruit tree.  The idea of pulling a tree that you put several years into is disappointing.

Thanks

They are not self pollinating and my concern is if there are any more paw paws within a few miles to pollinate from.  I am interested to sniff the flower to see how "pleasant" it is.

Hello,

I put in two paw paw trees a few years ago and one tree has flowers starting to emerge yaaaa!
The problem is my other paw paw doesn't appear to be ready to produce flowers this season boooo. I want to know if anyone lives in western Chicago burbs has a flowering paw paw I could nab a flower or two off of to pollinate my tree?  If not my next choice will be to contact the Morton Arboretum or Naperville settlement up the road to see if they will part with a couple.

Thanks

Oikos is in Kalamazoo, MI which is about the same latitude as we are. I think I am going to buy two. I was hoping to get a more mature specimen than a 3-6" seedling but can't seem to find them larger online.
I know there are probably an overload of posts about nurseries but can anybody recomend nurseries with nut trees? I will go with Oikos if I can't find larger specimens. Now I need to find my Dwarf Siberian Pine!

I have not been able to find much on the human edibility of the Oak Acorns either. I plan to squeeze Dwarf Siberian Pine (X2), Dwarf Chinkapin Oak (X2) and a Hazelnut into my lot. Do you have a lot of fruit/nut trees in you yard?

Hello,

I am looking at small edible nut producing trees for my suburban Chicago yard. Does anybody have any familiarity with the Dwarf Chestnut Oak? It fits my needs nicely but I have not been able to find how the acorns taste. If anybody has one or knows about them I have a few questions. How do the acorns taste? Do the acorns have to be rinsed? Are they a decent size acorn? How long before they produce? Any other info you could give me would be greatly appreciated thanks!

I have planted several different varieties of fruit trees in the yard and want to get some tree protein growing also. I will have to do my research on the Limber pine. I was hoping to find some that would bear nuts in around 5 years, which I know is a lot to hope for in nut trees. Any recommendations on other smaller pine trees with decent/good nut production?

I live in a typical suburban lot (slightly over a 1/4 acre lot) in suburban chicagoland and want to plant a couple pine trees, primarily for nut production. Any recommendations on smaller (25' or smaller) or dwarf species?

The two I was looking at were dwarf siberian pine (pinus pumila) and dwarf grafted korean pine (Pinus koraiensis). Any thoughts on these or other dwarf pines for nuts?

Thanks
