According to information from Blue Ridge Heritage Inc., last spring, 100 percent American chestnut saplings were planted to test soil and exposure locations in preparation for the introduction of the hybrid (blight-resistant) chestnut trees that will be gradually introduced to the site over the coming decades, in partnership with TACF. Of the American chestnut saplings planted six months ago, approximately ten have survived.
As a test crop, those trees should survive until the blight undermines them at about 15 years of age, offering information to guide the future planting of a restoration chestnut grove. According to BRHI President Steve Swartz, part of the heritage group’s long term plan is to have a grove of the 15/16ths American, hybrid and restoration chestnuts from The American Chestnut Foundation growing on this property for visitors to walk through.
