Restoration of the American Chestnut

The American chestnut [Castanea dentata (Marsh.) Borkh.] was one of the most abundant and important tree species of the eastern deciduous forest of North America for thousands of years, until decimated by chestnut blight, a disease caused by an exotic fungus [Cryphonectria parasitica (Murr.) Barr]. Come learn about some of the recent progress made to restore the highly-prized American chestnut.

This one hour webinar describes the process and progress in re-establishing the American Chestnut in several stands across the eastern US.
