    These are some of my chestnuts and oak seedlings I have going I have 23 different pure American and Chinese chestnut types also Concordia, Burr oak, Sawtooth oaks and some persimmon that are just coming up. I should have enough to get about 20 trees and give the rest away. IMG_0318.JPG IMG_0319.JPG

    Had some trouble with these critters. They are about 100 of the chestnuts I had started. IMG_0307.JPG IMG_0308.JPG

    Chipmunks are cute, but I HATE them.

    I ended up having to put my potted trees inside a wire dog kennel to protect them....the dang squirrels would even chew on the pots if they could reach them!

    I use 2 items to deter rodents like these. Milorganite and hot pepper flakes like the red pizza stuff. Sprinkle on top the dirt. Works pretty good. Milorganite needs to be refreshed after 3-4 weeks or so. I have about 100 chestnuts and oaks in the back yard. I am in the city and there are not too many chipmunks or squirrels. I have lost 3 trees with no other protection since 5/1. YMMV...

    Your trees are looking good. I noticed that you didn't say chinquapins. Did you forget about them or did they not work out for you? I screwed my chinquapins up this year and only have three that are doing anything. The northern red, bur, and chestnuts you sent me are doing great.
