Cape Chestnut

This purchase was for a small acreage allotment with the overall intent of providing a nice shade tree - in time. Planting location is on mid North Coast NSW and there are a number of larger fully grown trees in the district that I have observed. Product delivered was a good size and as advertised and am very pleased with the purchase.
