||Snapshot : USDA Forest Service scientists at the agency's Southern Research Station have been conducting research for the last ten years on a historic forest icon, the American chestnut. The scientists have built partnerships with state agencies and universities, The American Chestnut Foundation, and within the Forest Service to transfer technology to stakeholders who desire to see this tree restored. More than 4,000 trees have been planted and carefully monitored to reveal that the American chestnut has potential to be restored throughout its native range if certain challenges can be met.
