Working to Restore the American Chestnut

Hikers on the Appalachian Trail near Sunfish Pont in New Jersey. They are cataloguing a “big” tree while doing counts of smaller trees per AT section.

TACF’s Director of Restoration, Sara Fitzsimmons, had an article published recently about the work TACF is doing to restore the American chestnut tree. The article was requested by The Rewilding Institute, an organization whose mission is to “explore and share tactics and strategies to advance continental-scale conservation and restoration in North America and beyond.” In the article, Sara details the importance of restoring the tree in the Appalachian forest, TACF’s restoration efforts, and how folks can help.
