TACF and its unwavering force of supporters are doing something spectacular: rescuing the American chestnut! Our work opens the door for other threatened tree species to be saved and, in turn, can attribute to more diverse and productive forests.
At our next live Chestnut Chat on Friday, April 16, 11:30AM (EST), we will be joined by Mark Double, WV-TACF Chapter President and Laurel Rogers, Honors Program Director and Associate Professor of Biology at Shenandoah University. Their presentations will focus on the blight fungus, how it spreads, canker formation, and spore production. The impact of hypovirulent isolates used to control chestnut blight will also be covered in this live session.
There’s nothing more important and visionary than planting trees. Be part of this historical effort to restore a species. Help heal the environment. TACF offers many ways to get involved, all of which feel great!
