Report a Tree

Locating surviving American chestnut trees in Tennessee.

Do you know of the location of an American chestnut tree that may bloom and that we could use to pollinate? Send a leaf and twig sample to Tom Saielli, TACF Southeast Regional Science Coordinator, to confirm that it is an American chestnut tree. His address and information on sending the leaf and twig specimens are provided at:

Also, contact TN-TACF President Joe Schibig if you think you found a flowering/fruiting American chestnut. Your tree could be used in our breeding program.
