My Colossal chestnut trees produce a lush growth of leaves each year but seem to die back somewhat in winter, though I'm within the zone range. In about 6 years, they're only about 5' tall. I've gotten no nuts from them. Are they supposed to produce some sort of flower before the nuts?

BEST ANSWER: Do you have different varieties of chestnuts in your yard? They may need to have cross pollination.
