Re: [nafex] Re: chestnuts

I would try a few things.
  I would get scion wood from the producing tree (which is probable being 
pollinated by your trees) and graft as many as you can to your trees. This 
year I would see if it was possible to get a few blooming branches from the 
producing tree and just shake it over your tree and females. I have picked 
ripe pollen bearing pistalate s from one tree and hand pollinated when my 
one tree was to far from a prevailing wind tree till I got the grafts to 
start producing.

I also would like to hear advice on the subject of chestnuts.  I have
2 trees.  One is from a nursery in South Dakota and was planted as a
seedling in 1984.  The other was started from seed from a local
(Seattle) tree in 1986.  The past two seasons, one of the trees has
produced blanks (no nuts inside).  That is all these trees have ever
produced.  Is it possible they are both sterile?  There is a huge
chestnut tree a few houses away that produces, so my climate/location
is not the problem.
