As we continue work on our Seed and Breeding Orchards this year we are always looking for more volunteers!
Our newest seed orchard is located at the Massachusetts Fish & Wildlife Field Headquarters in Westboro, MA
Can you help provide a long-term seed orchard to grow potentially blight-resistant MA/RI chestnuts?
2012 saw the first planting of one of our “seed orchards”: the next generation of TACF’s breeding plan for blight-resistant chestnut, using nuts from our ~28 “BC3” orchards. Seed orchards produce highly blight-resistant offspring for our forests and other locations. More are needed!
Contact us for future orchard work dates, no experience necessary ! Volunteers are always welcome!
