The Mission of the CT Chapter of the American Chestnut Foundation is to restore a blight-resistant American chestnut (Castenea dentata) to the forests of Connecticut.
To accomplish this we've assisted the National Foundation with significant contributions toward the acquisition of Farms and capital equipment, we support the National Foundation with local pollination and propagation efforts, and we support the scientific efforts of the National Organization. We are in the process of developing a Ten Year Strategic Plan to focus and guide our mission. The plan fully outlines the program goals, and defines and prioritizes tasks, to help us achieve those goals. We welcome input from our membership in developing the plan.
