Volunteers aid effort at Penn State to bring back American chestnut tree

Matt Fedorko and other volunteers Monday planted American chestnut hybrids in an orchard owned by the State College-based Pennsylvania/New Jersey chapter of the foundation. On Penn State land, they filled in a grove of 150 trees, part of the foundation’s efforts to breed American chestnut hybrids resistant to a fatal blight more than a century old.
