Support American Chestnut Restoration by planting ACCF All-American Blight Resistant Chestnuts (non-GMO, no hybrid or foreign genes), Growing Trees and Reporting Their Progress. ACCF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All contributions are tax deductible.
In the first 40 years of the 20th century, blight destroyed 3.5 billion American chestnut trees. What had been the most important tree in our Eastern forest was reduced to insignificance. No comparable devastation of a species exists in recorded history,
