Donna,

I would think twice on chopping down those male persimmon trees.  Not all or even most American persimmons (Virginiana) will set fruit with dust or dead pollen like Meader  does.  I think instead of seedless fruits you will probably get no or few fruit.  Occasional male flowers from Early Golden are useful in breeding, but probably not enough for great fruit set.
