Adopt a forest revival plot. Ideal American Chestnut habitat is found on sloping lands at low to medium elevations, in coves or slopes facing east to north, with many chestnut stems, sandy loam soil and full sunshine. Good site indicator trees are tulip poplar, cucumber magnolia and red oak. When openings occur on these sites, they should be managed for American Chestnut recovery; no other use could match the potential benefit to the forest environment.
Plant American Chestnut seednuts
and report their progress to ACCF.
We supply American chestnut
seednuts to cooperators who make their request on a
Cooperating Grower Agreement Form (below) and contribute a minimum of $20
annually to support our research on behalf of American chestnut restoration.
We can no longer send seednuts to those growers from previous years
who have not sent a current report of their ACCF American chestnut planting.
Please send reports via our ONLINE
REPORT FORM or email to email@example.com.
***There is no monetary profit in our chestnut
distributions. Each year we aim to break even.
To take part in the American Chestnut Cooperators' Foundation nut distribution,
you fill out and sign a Cooperating Grower Agreement
Form and send with a check made out to ACCF
for your annual contribution of $20. You can request a Grower
Agreement Form via e-mail from firstname.lastname@example.org .
Grower orders are submitted on the Grower Agreement Form.
Orders from established growers must be accompanied by the annual report
of your surviving American chestnuts (unless we already have your report
on file). Mail to: ACCF, Forest Service Road 708,
Newport, VA 24128 or report via the web at this link Online
