Bonnet Farm Orchard

This orchard was founded in 2005 and culled in 2015.  Sixteen selected trees remain for seed production.

Please contact the Maryland Chapter for information about this orchard.

The final culling of this orchard was completed in 2015, and the following 16 trees in five lines remain for open pollination and seed production. These remaining trees were selected for blight resistance and American chestnut characteristics (tall and straight). Seed from these trees were planted in our seed orchard in 2015 and 2016.
