Join TACF's
Help restore the American chestnut and have a tree planted in your honor

For a $10 donation:

  • TACF will plant a Restoration Chestnut on your behalf,
    or on the behalf of a recipient of your choosing.

  • A personalized card will be sent to the recipient
    letting them know of your generous gift.

  • The recipient will receive the end-of-year edition of
    The Journal of The American Chestnut Foundation.

To restore the American chestnut, TACF must plant and monitor more than one million potentially blight-resistant trees in the next 7 years. These trees are the result of nearly 30 years of backcross breeding and are called Restoration Chestnuts 1.0 - and you can have one of these special trees planted in your honor (or a friend's).

Before the chestnut blight, American chestnut was among the fastest growing hardwoods of the eastern United States. American chestnuts once made up 25% (or 1 in 4 trees) of the hardwood forest. Planting chestnuts back in our eastern forests contributes towards species biodiversity and will provide an excellent food resource for wildlife.
