About The American Chestnut Foundation

Founded in 1983, TACF is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization with the mission to restore the American chestnut to our eastern woodlands to benefit our environment, our wildlife, and our society.  The American chestnut was once the dominate hardwood tree species in the eastern U.S., but was killed by an exotic fungus (chestnut blight) during the early 1900s.  TACF is developing an American chestnut tree resistant to the chestnut blight and is currently planting and evaluating our first line of potentially disease-resistant trees in our eastern forests.
