The Legacy Tree Orchard program was created to symbolize the permanency and endurance of the research trees we have nurtured at our Meadowview Research Farms in southwest Virginia for nearly four decades. The sentiment behind the program is to honor those individuals or families who have a deep abiding commitment to American chestnut restoration and wish to support our mission during, and after, their lifetimes.
The Legacy Tree Orchard is planted with American chestnut trees chosen from our very best hybrid material. Located at Meadowview’s Glenn C. Price Farm, the orchard is easily accessible for visitors. Landscaped paths and benches will offer the opportunity to stroll and reflect on the meaning behind these important gestures of generosity and hope.
Giving a Legacy Tree is one of the most impactful ways you can honor or memorialize a loved one, family member, or friend while generously supporting the long-term mission of The American Chestnut Foundation: to return an iconic species back to its native range.
