American Chestnut: Ill-fated Monarch of the Eastern Hardwood Forest
At the start of the 20th century, the American chestnut was the most important hardwood species from Massachusetts to the southern Appalachians. It had such fine, straight stump sprouts that early foresters were starting intensive coppice management. Then, the chestnut blight hit. Today, chestnut persists mostly as understory saplings and poles.
