TACF's Wild-Type American Chestnut Seedling Sale that takes place in March and is an exclusive member benefit. Bareroot seedlings are sold in a bundle of 10 and typically are 12" to 18" in height. The sale is accessed by a private link or by phone on the day of the sale.
This is a very popular program and the seedlings sell out quickly. In order to prevent the spread of contagions from the native range, including chestnut blight, Phytophthora, gall wasp, and other pests, no orders will be shipped to states west of the Mississippi. Orders will be mailed in early to mid-April.
2023 Pricing, includes shipping:
10 seedlings – $80.00
Proceeds from this program help fund research to restore the American chestnut.
