The restoration of the American chestnut is a project that will require the cooperation of state and federal agencies, private organizations, industry and individuals. The 2012 American Chestnut Summit will bring together scientists, private landowners, conservationists, outdoor enthusiasts and industry professionals to share the current state of knowledge of the American chestnut and inspire reintroduction of this species to eastern forests. The Summit will provide a unique opportunity to enhance awareness of the importance of American chestnut restoration, explore partnerships, exchange information and discuss this exciting project with a wide audience.
