Restoring the American chestnut

Once, as many as 1 out of every 4 trees, this giant grew over 100 feet tall, provided rot resistant building materials and sweet nuts for people and wildlife. It's been all but gone since the turn of the last century. But for the last 30 years, we at PA-TACF have been working to create resistance into this native tree so that we can restore it to the eastern landscape.

It may take another 30 years or more to restore this species, but we won't give up. We've made good progress with our research and are now combining that work with other cutting edge research in biotechnology and biocontrol.

Why so much effort for one tree?
The work we are doing may help us save the forest.

I ordered these earrings as a gift for my mom, and when they never arrived, Kim was kind enough to send me a second pair. The earrings were actually smaller than I was anticipating from the photo (I guess that I forgot that the photo was probably enlarged!) but they were just what my mom wanted, and she's very happy with them.
