That would be cool. It's sad to run across a rotted chestnut stump that thrown off 3 or 4 saplings that have all died back to the root because of the blight.

On my last backpacking trip(July 21-30), I ran into Hill Craddock of UTC and others doing some chestunut work in the Citico/Slickrock wilderness. A friendly bunch and they lugged a 30 foot ladder into the woods.
