American Chesnut

Noah Adams talks with Sheriff Larry Sherertz of the Rappahannock County Police Department about their annual American Chestnut seedling give-a-way. American Chestnuts have been virtually extinct since a fungus was introduced to the country almost a century ago. The American Chestnut Cooperators Foundation have been working hard to breed seedlings from the few surviving trees. Now they hope to reintroduce the species to its native environment.
