      Hi Sandy,
      The horse chestnuts grow about a foot a year. Or so. Depending on conditions. I had to really baby one of mine through a slow-growing period, weeding the grass out of it and repairing the cage, watering, and now it is a towering monster, currently in full flower. seems like that happened overnight. They really do have spreading arms. 30 feet apart would be about right. r

      Hi Belinda,
      These are sometimes used for bonsai and as such, with typical bonsai culture (wide and shallow pot, roots disturbed to stunt, pruned back vigorously), they may be kept indefinitely in potted culture. There is also a middle ground–plant up to a large pot (5 to 10 gallon) and keep trimmed back to desired size.

      Hi Bob, As far as my experience goes, the horse chestnuts always have straight trunks. Richo
