Have wanted to order the larger size for years but always miss out as item sold out. Remember picking up nuts around trees as a kid, but can't find trees around anymore...

Quite pleased with Stark's Bountiful Butternut
The butternut is vigorous and growing very well. I've been quite pleased with bare root trees that I've purchased from Stark Bros.

Sturdy stock
Received our Butternut tree in time for our growing season. It is growing hardily and has leaves already! Looking forward to watching it grow. The tree we received was thick and hardy. Always can trust Starks to send the best quality!

You would laugh at me.
My little Butternut tree-ling put on leaves 2 week after planting but they looked droopy like the little tree may not be getting enough water. So I watered, and watered and watered it. It put on more and more leaves but they still looked droopy. Not being able to figure out why, I did some research and low and behold I found out that is how the leaves of a Butternut grow. It survived thru our Montana winter and is thriving this spring. I would recommend the Bountiful Butternut from Stark Brothers to anyone who is looking for a hardy nut tree.

We had a freeze on May 14th and it lost all its leaves as the temperature fell to 27degrees. It's now sending out new buds.
