Growing Hybrid Chestnut Trees in the Lufkin TX Area

I would like to attract more deer to my property and have been reading which nut trees are best for that purpose. I found that the Burr Oak is a good oak trees for its quality and size of acorn but pails in comparison to the Chestnut tree. I also understand that when the Chinese Chestnut was brought into this county that they also brought in a blight that decimated the American Chestnut tree. I also found that there have been some success in creating hybrid Chestnut trees by crossing the American with the Chinese variety to create a tree that is not as susceptible to the disease.

So my question is will a Chestnut tree grow specifically in Polk county Texas and if so where would I be able to purchase some of these trees. Second question, I am also planting pecans, and hickory trees for wildlife, is there other trees I should considered. I have a bottom land (clay) as well as sandy loam soil.

Thanks for your advice

What is eating the leaves on my pecan tree?

All of my pecan tree leaves have been eaten up by caterpillars. I have searched the Internet and come up with the walnut caterpillar. Upon looking around the region, nearly all the pecan trees are eaten up. I live in southern Polk County in Texas. Can you send me information on these critters, and what might be done to detour another outbreak?
