Nut Tree Grafting-Chestnut

Anonymous added on October 5, 2014 | Answered

I have a chestnut tree in the ground, about 5 ft tall. I have some branches from a producing chestnut tree that I would like to graft in. Should I do it now and what method would be best? I live in southeast Texas near the gulf.

Grafting trees is rather a technical business, and differs widely from specie to specie, and situation to situation. I urge you to do some serious research on this matter if you want to be successful. You could consult with the nearest county extension service, to see what they recommend.

Here is a quick overview of grafting: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/grafting-trees-what-is-tree-grafting.htm

And this article should be of some value; it is one of many: http://chestnuts.freeservers.com/custom.html
