Quantities will vary based on the membership levels listed below as well as seed production levels. Minimum quantities are indicated below:

  • Chestnut Seed Level: 4 seeds
  • Bronze Seed Level: 6 seeds

Seed level members receive all member benefits, in addition to seeds.

Due to plant quarantines, TACF cannot ship seed west of the Mississippi. No exceptions.

Germplasm Agreement & Seed Order Form

All seed orders REQUIRE the completion of a Germplasm Agreement that must be signed by the landowner where the seeds are to be planted. If you are not the landowner, please print the form, and have the landowner sign and mail it to TACF at the address on the form.

Supplies for seeds are limited. Should demand exceed seed inventory, those wishing to participate in this program will be placed at the top of next year's distribution list.

DISCLOSURE: The chestnuts available through TACF'S seed-level membership program are for testing and evaluation only. There is no guarantee these chestnuts will have adequate resistance to the chestnut blight. By planting these seeds, members become part of our science team and help TACF evaluate the latest generation of trees. Your feedback on seedling performance is critical in helping our researchers improve resistance.
