Asbill-Beck Chestnut Planting 2005

April 29, 2005

The Asbill-Beck Family planted 69 BC3 hybrid chestnuts in 3-gallon tree pots the spring of 2005 and will transfer them to a clearing the fall of 2005 after a power line is buried, eliminating the possibility that the trees might later be trimmed or cut by the power company.
