Dunstan Chestnuts from Chestnut Hill Outdoors were shipped to select Walmart stores throughout the Southeast in February, just in time for spring planting. If you live in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina or Texas, spring is a great time to plant trees like the Dunstan Chestnut.

Ideal for wildlife, Dunstan Chestnuts are easy to grow and produce nuts in just three to five years. Because the trees available at Walmart are either 2 or 3 years old, they’ll begin producing nuts in just one to three years.


The trees are now available in select Walmart stores in the Southeast, while shipments to Walmart, Rural King and Theisens in the Central states will take place in April. Northern states will be receiving trees in April and May. As with the Southern shipments, the Chestnut Hill Dunstan Chestnut trees will be arriving in Central and Northern states in perfect time for spring planting.

Chestnut Hill Outdoors is the exclusive producer of Dunstan Chestnuts, the most widely planted chestnuts in America, thanks to their proven blight resistance and superior nut quality. These trees are extremely popular and will sell out quickly, so be sure to get yours early.
