Our Mission

The mission of the Virginia Chapter of The American Chestnut Foundation is to restore the American chestnut tree to Virginia’s woodlands to benefit our environment, our wildlife, and our society.

Become a Sustaining Donor

Become a sustaining donor by putting us in your will, estate plans, or donating land for a breeding orchard. Without people like you, The American Chestnut Foundation wouldn’t exist as it does today.
