Hey Stephen.  It won't be much longer before these trees wake up.  So I'm doing my final sales before I just plant whatever is left over.  I don't think I ever got your order.  So if you are still serious about it, nows your chance.  Thanks a bunch.  
Hi Greg, thanks for reaching out.  I think they will.  They are hardy to your zone. I see lots of references for recommendations for planting in zone 5. I think you are on the right track by planting more densely.  These are trees from awesome genetics, but there is enough variability that you will be able to select the trees to keep that are most adapted to your site and climate.  
If you order and want to get a combination of both varieties, just mention so in the 'order notes' at check out.  
Hi Stephen.  I can split orders 50/50 with both varities, no problem.  The free shipping is anywhere within the United States.  

As for the Kohr variety, I also have not found a lot of info on it.  I know it is one of the varities grown in the Missouri State University Agroforestry department in their chestnut trials.  It has proven to be a quality tree with commercial viability.  

Happy planting! :)
These are 2+ feet tall bare root Chinese chestnut seedling trees.  The nuts came from high-quality cultivars suitable for commercial production.  You can choose between two parent trees 'Qing' or 'Kohr'.

Hey Michael.  Sorry for the delayed reply.  I somehow missed your question.  

I both let them grow on the ground, as well as over a trellis.  I find that the yields are improved when they have a trellis.  

Take care!
