Plant a Tree is a symbolic gift program of The American Chestnut Foundation. The location of the tree is not made available.

Help restore an American icon - plant a tree to honor someone special! 

The American Chestnut Foundation (TACF) plants and monitors more than 1 million potentially blight-resistant American chestnut trees in national forests throughout the tree's native range. These trees, Restoration Chestnuts 1.0, represent more than 30 years of scientific research and breeding efforts.

For a $10.00 donation, TACF will plant a Restoration Chestnut 1.0 in the name of a designated recipient. Your donation includes a personalized card mailed to your recipient, and acknowledges both your gift and TACF's efforts to restore the American chestnut. You may also opt to send the card electronically (to save trees!).
