Going Green: Chestnut Tree Restoration

Description

One hundred years ago, an average American Chestnut tree would’ve grown to 100 feet tall but it’s being killed by cankers that encircle the tree and kill it. The chestnut blight, first discovered in 1904, has killed over 4 billion chestnut trees.
