The Tennessee Chapter of the American Chestnut Foundation (TN-TACF) is hoping to find five to ten "Mother Trees" to pollinate each year. The lifespan of each blooming American Chestnut tree in Tennessee is brief but each can contribute valuable genetic diversity to the effort to breed a blight-resistant tree.
If you know the location
of a potential "Mother Tree" please fill out the Chestnut Tree Locator
