American chestnut coming back


The Wauseon Tree Commission recently planted six American chestnut trees at North Park in Wauseon. The species was eliminated back in the early 1900s by a blight specifically known to American chestnuts. Now, efforts are being made to re-populate the tree throughout the country.
