  •  I saw a picture of a fairly large and (5+ / 0-)

    solitary American chestnut in Oregon a few years back. The photo was probably in an issue of National Geographic or Smithsonian.

    While living in Western North Carolina several years back, my wife and I would occasionally come across chestnut stumps of enormous proportions during hikes. Their existence a century after the tree's demise is testament to the quality of the wood. Sometimes the stump would be sending up a shoot of new growth too. These never survive beyond a few seasons, when the blight kills them.

    It's not a campaign anymore, Mr. Obama.
