DescriptionThe restoration of the American chestnut is a goal that uniltes chestnut enthusiasts from Maine to Georgia, from the East Coast to the Ohio River, and even beyond the boundaries of this majestic species' native range. But while our goal is the same--to restore this tree to its former place in the forest--the obstacles vary with each location this effort is undertaken. In the northern and colder reaches of the American chestnut's native range, hardiness to low temperatures may be a challenge to returning this tree to the forest.
