American chestnut trees were acquired by Monroe as seedlings from the Connecticut Agricultural Department Experiment Station (CADES). They were planted at the Edith Wheeler Memorial Library recently. The CADES has produced a blight-resistant strain of American chestnuts by backcrossing with Chinese trees over many decades. Three other American chestnuts were planted June 6 at Great Hollow Lake in Wolfe Park in a community mobilization generated from a grant from the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection for streamside buffer remediation of the Pequonnock River. A grant from the Aquarion Water Company supported the Chestnut initiative.
