The New York Chapter is searching for large surviving American chestnut trees in New York State to be “Mother trees” for restoration.

In an effort to introduce more wild pure American chestnut trees into the transgenic breeding program, the Chapter is now offering a reward for American chestnut trees found growing in the wild. For more information, please download the reward poster available here or contact Chapter president Allen Nichols.
