Rutgers researchers nurture young trees in hopes of reviving American chestnut

May 01, 2016 - As Arbor Day is observed Friday, Rutgers University researchers are making efforts to bring back a species of tree that used to be among the tallest along the Eastern Seaboard.

American chestnuts made up about a quarter of Northeast forests until a fungus from trees imported from Asia in the late 19th century wiped them out, said Christina Kaunzinger, a senior ecologist at Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences.

"They provided a dependable source of nuts for the wildlife of the forest and for people as well," she said. "The trees themselves produced rot-resistant wood that was used for a lot of timber applications."

Experimental hybrid American chestnut trees cross-bred with blight-resistant Asian varieties were planted by Rutgers researchers in Somerset County six years ago; so far, they’re thriving.

Meanwhile, researchers in New York are taking a different approach. They’ve genetically engineered chestnut saplings immune to the fungus.

Rutgers plant biology professor Brad Hillman hopes restoration attempts will succeed.

"It would be terrific to see some of the same types of landscapes as in the 1800s and 1700s. It was an important part of the forestry system at the time for a good reason," Hillman said. "People loved the tree."

At rt23.com, we highlight the uniqueness of Northern New Jersey with articles on its scenic beauty, recreational opportunities and history.
The rt23.com research team is out and about finding items of interest to both long time residents and visitors. We have our pads, pencils and cameras to make a record of this scenic part of America.

The state of New Jersey has an undeserved reputation of being completely covered with big cities and big industry. We'd like to change this perception by introducing one of the least known and most beautiful parts of America. Forty percent of New Jersey is forest and woodland. An additional twenty-one percent is fruit, dairy and vegetable farms.

Rt23.com is named for North Jersey's highway Route 23 which begins at a city intersection in Verona, N.J. and ends near the Delaware River National Recreation Area. Join us as we explore the region where America begins!
