Here’s a little chestnut green today from The American Chestnut Foundation's Meadowview Research Farms in Virginia where we preserve, study, and breed American chestnut trees for resistance to the blight fungus. Pictured in these also: Ciera Wilbur, Nursery Manager; Cassie Stark, Laboratory Manager and Dr. Vasiliy Lakoba, Director of Research.
