How Can I Get A Tree?

So you’re wondering, “How can I get a tree”?

Advanced hybrid chestnut trees are not commercially available.  But by purchasing an ANNUAL SPONSOR membership to TACF®, you are eligible to receive our latest line of potentially blight-resistant seed stock from our Restoration Chestnuts 1.0. This is the first time we are able to offer the opportunity to test our latest line of potentially blight-resistant seeds to our members. These seeds represent more than three decades of our best science.

These chestnuts are for testing and evaluation only. There is no guarantee they will have adequate resistance to the chestnut blight, but by planting these seeds you become part of our science team by helping us evaluate these latest trees. Your feedback on seedling performance will be critical in helping TACF researchers improve resistance.

It is also possible to obtain pure American chestnut seedlings (not disease-resistant) from local providers.  Contact the Virginia office of The American Chestnut Foundation for information.
