Chestnuts home range was a fair bit north of you. Its another deeply taprooted tree. At maturity its a honkin' big tree.
I'd plant 'em seeing as you already have some. Needs standard sized pecan spacing (40' on center).
Suplimental watering during drouth will be where the rubber hits the road, more than chilliing hours.
