American Chestnut Cooperators' Foundation


The principal objective of  the American Chestnut Cooperators' Foundation is to raise funds to support graduate and undergraduate student research projects in Virginia Tech's Department of Plant Pathology, Physiology & Weed Science, and Concord College, West Virginia.  This research makes possible our seedling and nut distributions for American chestnut restoration.

Priorities include the development of blight-resistant all-American chestnuts and economical biological control measures against chestnut blight in the  forest environment.
