        Restoration of the American Chestnut | Kentucky Life

        In this KET video segment from Kentucky Life, learn how a majestic old chestnut tree that miraculously survived the blight is being preserved, studied, and pollinated under the watchful eye of scientists. See the precise process the scientists use to control the pollination of the flowers in order to study the offspring for resistance to blight. Watch as the scientists return four months later to harvest the nuts.
