Founded in 1983, The American Chestnut Foundation (TACF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission to return the iconic American chestnut to its native range. The American chestnut was once the dominant hardwood tree in the eastern U.S. but was killed by an exotic fungus (chestnut blight) during the early 1900s. TACF is developing an American chestnut tree resistant to the chestnut blight and is currently planting and evaluating potentially disease-resistant trees in our eastern forests.
