Get Involved!

There are so many ways to support our restoration mission. Whether you are just learning about the American chestnut or have been a passionate follower for years, there is something here for everyone.

Become a Member: Your membership dollars support our efforts in restoring the American chestnut to Eastern forests. Membership also exposes you to a large network of passionate individuals and opportunities for involvement.

Volunteer: There are several ways to offer your time and interests to our organization. If what you have to offer is not a match for the Volunteer opportunities we have listed, let us know. We’d love to hear your ideas and we may have unexpressed needs that you could match.

Report a Tree: We keep a large database of wild American chestnuts found throughout the East. As a small organization, your input helps us stay informed. Please report a tree if you have found a potential American chestnut.

Plant a Tree: You can always help us plant trees at our existing orchards, but many people want to plant American chestnuts on their own property or even establish an orchard. Our plant a tree page informs you about your options.

Join the Conversation: The PA/NJ Chapter has started a Facebook Group to provide a platform for dialogue among our members and supporters. We welcome all who interested in the American chestnut to join this conversation.
