What

Are you a “tree hugger” in search of a tree to hug? If so, join us as a Castanea (chestnut) caregiver! This unique citizen science opportunity will examine the historical importance of the legendary American chestnut.  Learn about The Arboretum’s collaboration with The American Chestnut Foundation and the more than 350 trees growing in the chestnut research plot.  Adopt up to three hybrid chestnuts, and learn planting techniques that will help to ensure their success when you take them home.  Finally, we’ll show you how to report on your adoptees’ height, vigor and survival.
