When white folks arrived on these shores, American chestnuts were the dominant tree from Georgia to Maine; then in the early 1900s, an imported disease virtually wiped them out — an estimated 4 billion trees. Now, thanks to the American Chestnut Foundation -- and its genetic improvement program -- the trees are positioned to make a comeback. Here, ACF President Bryan Burhans and Natural Landscape Crew Leader Tony Morrison pose with one of the newly planted, blight-resistant young trees.
Art and arboretum go together: Through August 22, visitors to the N.C. Arboretum can enjoy the work of Tennessee artist Margaret Scanlan. Her exhibit, Balance and Beauty: A Visual Celebration of Rural Life features rich colors and the "quiet beauty of the pastoral rural landscape," according to the Arboretum press release. For more details, see the full release.
