I like fhte fact that there's efforts to bring back the American chestnut. They're crossbreeding with the Asian chestnut to develop trees with American size and the Asian resistance, and this effort is expected to take another 50 years. That's planning. There's also work on a virus that infects the blight and makes it hypovirulent, which means the trees can survive the infection.
I want to plant trees. I want them to live. I want my kid to be surrounded by chestnuts when he walks the Applachian Trail, possibly with his kid. Wouldn't that be something?
