American Chestnut Saplings

On Thursday, April 9, 2015 at 2pm Poricy Park volunteers planted two American Chestnut saplings at the Park. The American Chestnut was prominent until the early 1900’s at which time chestnut blight was unintentionally brought to North America and destroyed most of the mature American chestnut trees within 40 years. Poricy Park is fortunate to receive and care for two saplings and will use the opportunity to share with all of the visitors the beauty, history, and value of this majestic species! The saplings are donated and grown by Tony Rosati, a local resident who raises chestnuts to be planted in the area. Tony is trying to revive the American Chestnuts species in Middletown parks.
