Mary was relieved to finally get some answers to her questions. However, she felt saddened by the demise of the American chestnut. It was such a beautiful tree that had provided a reliable source of food for people and wildlife for thousands of generations. Then the tree was gone from the forest in about forty years! During Mary’s initial research she read that scientists were working on restoring the American chestnut to the woodlands of eastern North America.
