Well that is important to know about a long taproot. The soil in most places of my property gets worse as you go downward.
I have not had much success with pecan which has a very long taproot or walnuts yet, but the blight resistant dunstan chestnut and a chinese chestnut are doing well. The native chinquapin type of chestnuts will not survive on my place I assume due to blight.
