American Chestnut Trees

A New Generation of American Chestnut Trees May Redefine America's Forests -  Before an exotic fungus nearly wiped them out in the late 1800s, abundant chestnut trees shaped the forest ecosystem, providing food and shelter for numerous other species. In coming decades Chestnut trees engineered to battle the fungus could restore these lost relationships.

Seventy years after American chestnuts all but died out, researchers will soon be applying with Canadian regulators to distribute a genetically modified version.

American chestnut tree ~ A family next to an ancient American chestnut in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Western North Carolina, before the blight decimated this species.  A rapidly growing, deciduous hardwood tree, the chestnut reached up to 100-150 feet tall and 10 feet in diameter.
