On the ultimate day of their 4-week internship with the New Canaan Land Trust, New Canaan High School seniors planted rare American chestnut seedlings on the Land Trust’s Hicks Meadow. Accompanied with the aid of New Canaan resident John Kriz, the group obtained the blight-resistant seedlings from the American Chestnut Foundation, and are supporting to reintroduce this once-strong tree to its native range.
“The tale of the American Chestnut is exceptional” stated Kriz, of Wilton’s Cannon Grange, a group concerned in the reintroduction effort. “A blight killed nearly all of our chestnut timber approximately 100 years ago, but scientists have figured out a way to breed resistance into the species and are working to restore the populace.”
After learning approximately the tree’s tumultuous history, Land Trust interns George Dumbauld, Richard Ettinger, Julen Sprackling and Hans Toft-Nielsen planted the seedlings and guarded them against predation with the aid of constructing small cages around every plant. While the seedlings may be small today, chestnut bushes can develop for hundreds of years, and change into majestic, big-canopied timber. With a chunk of success, the Land Trust may also have one of the first blight-resistant chestnuts in the location.
“Our interns discovered that planting a tree can be a very selfless act,” said Land Trust Executive Director Aaron Lefland. “It will take a few years for those seedlings to grow into beautiful, nut-generating bushes. We wish that George, Richard, Hans and Julen will go back with their kids and grandchildren to revel in the fruit in their labor.”
The interns also completed a number of different initiatives, such as path improvement, creating content material for social media and compiling historical statistics approximately the Land Trust’s nearly 75 residences and easements.
