Large native tree once abundant in our forests. Often lives many healthy years and even bears nuts before succumbing to chestnut blight. Large ornamental flowers in spring precede highly sought after nuts which are held in spiky husks. Breeding efforts to develop a blight-resistant American chestnut are starting to gain ground.
