Asked March 20, 2018, 9:05 AM EDT

We would like to try growing nut bearing trees on a property in zone 3 the zip code is 56576. Can you please give recommendations & I also want to know if any chestnut trees will survive the climate there. Thank you, Chrissy

Chinese chestnut is a possibility as is Ohio buckeye(I have two growing in New York Mills). The only difference in these two is blossom color.
