Chestnut Mega-Transect


Document status of American chestnuts along Appalachian Trail.
Identify and count American chestnuts along 1 miles segments.

The goal of the Chestnut Mega-Transect Project is to document the current status of American chestnuts along the Appalachian Trail. Using the idea that the Appalachian Trail is really a transect through a unique US ecosystem, TACF trains hikers to identify and count American chestnuts along the Appalachian Trail as divided into approximately 1 miles segments.
