Description

As article on the loss of the American Chestnut and the big gaps that the death of these trees would leave in forests where they comprised at least forty to sixty percent of the trees. The author urges farmers to see farm forests as a source of income and to resist the urge to clear-cut the remaining trees and make fields for crop cultivation once the chestnuts were gone.
