Members have first access to TACF's wild-type American chestnut seedling sale that takes place in early March. The bareroot seedlings are sold in bundles of 5, 10, and 25 and typically are 12" to 18" in height. The sale is accessed by a private link or by phone orders on the day of the sale. If stock is available, the sale opens to the public mid-March.
This is a very popular program and the seedlings sell out quickly. Distribution range is only available to states east of the Mississippi (no exceptions). Orders will be mailed by mid-April.
Pricing includes shipping:
5 seedlings – $35.00
10 seedlings – $70.00
25 seedlings – $175.00
Proceeds from this program help fund research to restore the American chestnut.
