The Return of the Chestnut Tree

Record #:
American chestnut trees were plentiful in the Appalachian forest, until the chestnut blight disease caused a rapid, widespread die-off in the early part of the twentieth century. Farmers and volunteers in western North Carolina are working with the American Chestnut Foundation to plant, grow and re-establish chestnut trees in the state’s forests.
