Castanea dentataA large oval to broad rounded deciduous tree native to the eastern U.S. Chestnut blight, introduced into the U.S. in 1906, decimated millions of acres of native stands of American chestnuts. Remaining large specimens are those that are isolated from the main native population. The genus Castanea is named for an area of Greece known for its trees.
