See how American chestnut tree orchard in Greenwich has grown

In 2014, Greenwich Land Trust (GLT) joined the Greenwich Tree Conservancy in establishing the first American chestnut tree orchard in Fairfield County. This project’s goal is to grow blight resistant American chestnuts in the Greenwich area. Working with the American Chestnut Foundation, GLT planted 400 of ACF’s seedlings on a permanently preserved property in central Greenwich. For almost two years, the chestnuts have been adapting and growing. 

Join the Greenwich Land Trust on Wednesday, July 20, from 3-4:30 p.m. for a presentation by representatives of the GLT and the American Chestnut Foundation’s CT chapter at the chestnut site. Learn about how GLT’s chestnuts are doing and how other projects along the East Coast are faring as well.  

Space is limited. Please RSVP to [email protected] for directions. Walking shoes are required to go along the trail to the chestnuts.
