From the prior dominance of American chestnut to current efforts to restore the species, we will follow Castanea dentata over its history in North America.

Efforts to breed blight-resistance into American chestnut appear to be successful and attempts to study reintroduction to its original range have now begun. From the prior dominance of American chestnut to current efforts to restore the species, we will follow Castanea dentata over its history in North America. We will also cover what it will take to introduce a new variety of American chestnut into the Appalachian forests and beyond. Through this presentation, learn about the basic requirements for planting and maintenance that should ensure a healthy grove of American chestnuts.
