Chinese Chestnut trees don't produce nuts

Asked December 16, 2016, 11:58 AM EST

I have three 50+ years old Chinese chestnut trees in my yard. they form a triangle, with about 40ft-10ft-35ft apart to each other. One tree had some nuts last year but I only saw maybe 5-10 nuts this year from all the three trees. What could be the problem and what should I do to make them produce next year?

Here is a Chestnut Growers' Guide. Perhaps it can help you track down the production limiter. I do know that production does fluctuate from year to year.
