Help save the great American Chestnut Tree

You can help to save an iconic American tree and increase your hunting experience at the same time. Mature American chestnuts have been virtually extinct for decades. The tree’s demise started with a disease called ink disease in the early 1800s, which steadily killed the American chestnut in the southern portion of its range.

More than a century ago, billions of American chestnuts were wiped out by an invasive fungus. Now, scientists are working to restore the tree to its former glory.

The American chestnut’s annual production of highly nutritious nuts was extremely reliable. At the turn of the 20th century it was ranked as one of the most important wildlife plants in the East. The nuts were a major cash crop for rural economies in the region, and many wildlife species depended extensively on them. Bear, deer, wild turkey, squirrels, many birds and small mammals – and once, the huge flocks of passenger pigeons – all waxed fat for the winter in the chestnut forests.

By returning the American chestnut you will also be helping to increase food crops for wildlife to forage and gain abetter hunting experience at  your hunting camp
