    Interesting that Ozark Chinkapins are in Alabama and Virginia. I thought the Ozark Chinkapin Foundation was a one man operation?

    They have a few emails setup on their Facebook page so that's a positive.

    I'd like to volunteer and help them plant/maintain down there sometime as it would be a worthwhile experience....

    The big take away for me is that OzC is genetically distinct.
    It is also higher on the nutrition scale.
    OzC would seem to have big potential especially since in produces fast in poor soil.
    The more they find out the more interesting it gets.

    Definitely a good one to plant more of!!! I heard there is one at Powell gardens here in the KC area.

    I saw this and see OzC can grow in the north. How well does it do there?

    Is it reproductively isolated or promiscuous with other Castanea, like AmC?

    I have several C. pumila that i got from Empire Chestnut in Ohio when the TACF annual meeting was there in 2000. There has never been any winter die-back, and they have been fruiting heavily since age ~2 or 3. I am in zone 5B, 2 miles from Atlantic Ocean. I know of no other chinquapins growing in ME, other than a very few that I have given away, also in 5B. I have aways assumed that their range is excluded from new england by their fall germination rather than their cold hardiness.

    So that means C. pumila and OzC likely can be expanded to northern sites.

    I just sent a letter to a man in MO to get scions from some ozark chinkapins. He's told me they can be grafted to Chinese chestnuts. I'm gonna try that this spring and thinking about burying the graft union to avoid incompatibility issues with some of them.

    I tried to t-bud some ozarks to Chinese chestnut as I was told that would work but pretty sure they all failed. That being said I'm super new to grafting.
    I am planning on trying some other grafts this spring as well. Another thing I'm wanting to try is grafting the ozarks to a Chinese chinquapin and see if that works better maybe.

    Any way to find out who or where the tree in Tuscaloosa county-Alabama is. I live in that county and would be neat to see it

    I can tell you from experience OCs don't respond well to root pruning containers and hot sun. Been there and done that...

    My attempts were failures this year to allehany chinkapin. I'm wanting to try t budding next I think I prefer planting in spring and summer grafting instead of trying to do it all at once.
