Chestnut trees will begin to bloom in Kentucky from mid- June to early July. Be on the look-out for wild type Americans in your woods. A few surviving stump sprouts live long enough to begin to bloom. However, few produce viable nuts because of the trees need to cross pollinate. Col. Jimmie Sizemore, KWOA Director and American Chestnut Foundation volunteer, provided pictures below to help you search. If you find what you believe to be a surviving American chestnut you can report its location by using a form found at www.acf.org. Or simply use the Tree Snap App to record the tree and its location.
