In the mid to late 1800s the American chestnut was densely populated with a range from Maine to Georgia. In native forests throughout their range, mature chestnuts are storied to have averaged up to five feet in diameter and up to one hundred feet tall. Many specimens of eight to ten feet in diameter were recorded, and there were rumors of trees bigger still. So what happened? Read about it on page 1.
