About The American Chestnut Foundation
The American Chestnut Foundation (TACF) is a nonprofit conservation, education, and scientific organization
with 20+ staff members located from Vermont to North Carolina, an 18-member board, and an annual budget
of 3 million dollars. Founded in 1983 and based in Asheville, NC, TACF and its 16 state chapters are employing

lead role in rescuing this species through its innovative breeding and genetic research for four decades. TACF’s
long-term goal is to create self-sustaining populations, with disease-resistant trees growing stronger in each
succeeding generation. TACF is restoring a growing legacy for decades and centuries to come.
