Lunch & Learn: On Arbor Day - The American Chestnut

Friday, Apr 26, 2013 12:00p to 1:00p

Once there were over 4 billion American chestnut trees in the United States with 1 out of every 4 trees in the Appalachian forests a chestnut. In 1904 the chestnut blight disease was discovered in New York City & by the 1930´s, almost all the chestnut trees in the Carolinas were dying.
Bring your lunch and join us to learn more about the American Chestnut Foundation's Carolinas Chapter and the reforestation efforts of Chestnut trees.
