Abstract

It has now been over half a century since chestnut blight, caused by the fungus Endothia parasitica (Murr.) A. & A., was introduced into America from the Orient. In that time the blight has spread relentlessly and has destroyed all of our commercial stands of this once most valuable hardwood species of the East.
