Burnham, along with a group of dedicated scientists--including Nobel Prize winning biologist Norman Borlaug--founded The American Chestnut Foundation (TACF), with the mission: "To restore the American chestnut tree to our eastern woodlands to benefit our environment, our wildlife, and our society" (TACF 2007).
The American Chestnut Foundation, based in Asheville, North Carolina, has been working on introducing into the American chestnut the genetic material for the blight resistance found in the Chinese chestnut while preserving in every other way the genetic heritage of the American species.
In fact, the trees being planted at Flight 93 National Memorial are the latest batch from the American Chestnut Foundation (ACF), which is using a "backcross" technique to hybridize American chestnuts with blight-resistant Asian species, producing seedlings that are almost identical to the native species but are blight-resistant.
These were probably f1 crosses, half Chinese and half American, first generation hybrids bred long before the American Chestnut Foundation began their systematic approach.
Burnham and other scientists in 1983 founded the private, nonprofit American Chestnut Foundation to carry out a scientific program of backcross breeding.
For more information on the loss of the American chestnut and what you can do to re-introduce the native species, visit, call the center at 828-683-3662, or contact the American Chestnut Foundation through their website at
Today, the American Chestnut Foundation (ACF), established by a group of plant breeders and geneticists in 1983, is working to create a hybrid tree with the disease resistance of the Chinese chestnut and the physical characteristics of the American.
Decades ago, the USDA did create blight-resistant hybrids of American and Chinese species, explains Fred Hebard of the American Chestnut Foundation's breeding farm near Meadowview, Va.
The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, ALCOA, the Disney Wildlife Conservation Fund and the Lyndhurst Foundation have pledged support to the Charlie Chestnut program -- an e-learning initiative of the American Chestnut Foundation, a nonprofit organization in Bennington, Vt., and of Knowledge Environments of North Adams, Mass.
For more on efforts to restore this mast species, check out the American Chestnut Foundation's website:
STURBRIDGE -- Volunteers with the American Chestnut Foundation planted 70 chestnuts at the Hamilton Rod and Gun Club Thursday, in an effort to restore the once-dominant tree that was virtually wiped out by a fungal blight in the early 1900s.
