Butternut seedlings

10.00

Butternut is a tree native to eastern North America. Quite a vigorous tree, it was unbitquitus in Vermont. It is under attack by a canker disease that is destroying the native populations. Our seed is selected from what we believe to be pure butternut showing little to no sign of blight. Whether this is from resistance, isolation or other reasons is unknown. Butternut hybridizes easily with Japanese Walnut and Heartnut, so many trees though to be survivors turn out to be hybrids. This article  goes over the details. Planting butternut seedlings is important to help preserve the existing genetics before they are all gone. NO BUTTERNUT TREES CAN BE SHIPPED TO MO, KS, IN, MI, IA, NE, MN
