England Regional Science Coordinator with the chestnut foundation, has been working since 2008 to help repopulate the area with the trees.
Gurney said she is interested Gucci Belt Snake to see how the plants do in colder conditions, and that the primary purpose of the planting in town next month will be to study how well they thrive.
Gurney said the first known case of blight appeared in New York City in 1904 and reached New Hampshire by the 1920s. The blight, carried on the wind and small animals, is fast moving and affects the living tissues under the bark of a tree.
Attempts to repopulate the chestnut tree began about 30 years ago, she said. The process uses cross pollination to breed trees that are more resistant to the Asian blight.
have been planted elsewhere, but that the May planting will be the furthest north.
American chestnuts once dominated forests in the eastern United States, covering over 200 million acres of woodlands from Maine to northern Florida. That changed in the late 1800s, however, when a lethal fungal disease, Asian blight, came to the country and killed off much of the species.
HOLLIS Local land will soon be home to a species of American Chestnut trees years in the making, and members of the public are invited to learn more about the project Saturday.
The planting in town, part of a large project to repopulate the country with the trees, will not be held until May 19, but interested locals can head to Beaver Brook's Maple Hill Farm headquarters Saturday, April 28, to learn more about the project and how they can get involved.
Beaver Brook Association has partnered with The American Chestnut Foundation to create and maintain a planting of nearly 400 potentially blight resistant America chestnuts in northern New England.
"It was probably the most useful tree there ever was," Beaver Brook Natural Resource Manager Peter Smith said Wednesday. "They were straight, fast growing with strong timber. People ate the nuts and wildlife depended on them. The thought of bringing it back is intriguing for anyone who knows the history of the tree."

The Beaver Brook land is ideal, she said, because there are naturally occurring chestnuts in the area.
The nuts that will be planted locally are part of the sixth, and final, generation of trees created through this process in Virginia. Gurney said that other sixth generation nuts Gucci Belt Png
Last May, a similar but smaller planting of several cross pollinated chestnuts from Virginia was completed at Belts Lv
Once a tree is cross pollinated and its seeds have grown into trees about 3 inches in diameter, the blight is introduced to the trees to see how resistant they are. The most resistant trees are then cross pollinated again, producing their own nuts and seedlings and creating a more resistant tree with each generation.
Gurney is one of several members of the foundation who will be at Maple Hill Farm this weekend to teach locals about that history and the species' restoration.
