May 4 - American Chestnut - Castanea dentata

American Chestnut

I heard about the American Chestnut Foundation while on a hike a couple of weeks ago at the North Carolina Arboretum. This organization has a mission to reestablish the American Chestnut into America. They are working to develop an American Chestnut Tree that is resistant to the fungus that killed all the American Chestnut trees in our country. So please go to www.acf.org and see what you can do to help reestablish the American Chestnut.  http://www.acf.org/
