This past fall we planted 150 fruit and Dunstan chestnut trees from Chestnut Hill Nursery at our Borrowed Acres property. Fall is the ideal time to plant these trees because they are dormant and it gives the roots time to settle and get established. However, as spring brings on warmer temperatures the trees begin to “wake up” and start flowering and sprouting leaves. This is when you want to give your trees a boost with an all-purpose fertilizer and knock back weed and grass competition around the young trees. Check out this quick video to see how easy this critical step is.
