American chestnut seedlings are available in Michigan through a number of county conservation districts. The American Chestnut Council (ACC) sells or has sold seedlings to districts including Barry, Benzie, Cheboygan, Isabella, Leelanau, Livingston, Missaukee, Oceana, Otsego, and Wexford Conservation Districts and to individuals. ACC would prefer to sell to Conservation Districts, but if you cannot get your local CD to sell them to you, they can be ordered by contacting Jim Skipper at 231-884-0344 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please work through your local CD first. ACC will only sell individuals a minimum order of 10, plus shipping. Two trees surviving deer and rabbits are required in order to produce nuts.
