American Chestnut

Here is a victim of the chestnut blight. Since the early 1900's the American Chestnut, Castanea dentata, has in many cases been killed off by that nasty fungus.

What I like about this tree is its determination to survive. Although everything above the main trunk had died off, there are sprouts from the trunk reaching out.

It's a short post today--finally wrapped up late night new car shopping! Phew, glad that's over...
