Wow - that's great news. Hopefully we get some nuts!

I was just reading the ACF was calling the tree "functionally extinct", but that doesn't seem to be true. I think there are enough resistant trees out there they could be repopulated.

Last I knew, the wheat gene added to the chestnut genome for blight resistance is about ready to be approved...Maybe future generations can enjoy chestnuts roasting on an open fire that smell like fresh baked bread

According to one of my hiking friends, his grandparents worked as caretakers at the old Whitehouse. His uncle told him that his grandfather had planted a small orchard worth of apple trees not far from where the old chimney is and that you could still find some in the woods. We went looking a few years ago and couldn't find any. Had anyone run across this?

I'm assuming that by now, any apple trees would be descended from the originals.
