Restoration of the American Chestnut Tree

Wednesday December 7, 2016
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM


Less than 100 years ago eastern U.S. forests were dominated by large American chestnut trees. By the 1950’s this population was reduced to short-lived stump sprouts. These trees reigned over 200 million acres of eastern woodlands from Maine to Florida, and from the Piedmont west to the Ohio Valley, until succumbing to a lethal fungus disease, chestnut blight. An estimated 4 billion American chestnuts, one quarter of the hardwood tree population, grew within this range prior to the blight.

Join Wildlife Biologist, Curt Laffin, as he discusses the history and demise of this tree and promising efforts by the American Chestnut Foundation to restore it locally and throughout its historic range.   For more information see American Chestnut Foundation.
