Trying to save the state tree also helps Pennsylvania trout

>>>Pennsylvania fishermen like Russ Collins are worried about trees.

He lives in Palmyra, Lebanon County, and is the vice president of Trout Unlimited's southcentral chapter. He wonders whether a struggling tree species could ultimately endanger one of the top fishing grounds in the country, if not the world.

Collins sees first-hand how the iconic Eastern hemlock — Pennsylvania's state tree — is dying off. A stand of hemlocks in his backyard is all but gone despite efforts to combat a bug that slowly sucks the life from them.

He also points to a two-mile stretch of water in Dauphin County where hemlocks are dying off every 40 feet or so. It's gotten so bad that the fallen giants have jammed up a section of Clarks Creek.

Native Tree Expert Shares His Wisdom of the Woods

>>>Mention Lennilea Farm Nursery to a fan of native flora in this neck of the woods, and chances are their eyes will light up as a knowing smile creases their face.

The 180-acre farm in the Village of Huffs Church in southeast Berks County is tucked behind the historical house of worship that gives the town its name.

Robert and Cindy Seip, who named the farm for the Lenni Lenape indigenous to this place, have made a living in cooperation with that land, in some way, shape or form, since they were married in 1960.

It is Robert's boyhood home. He moved there in 1938 when he was 9 years old after his mother took up residence with Floyd Kemp, who purchased the farm and was a lineman by trade. The couple had a daughter together, Robert's half-sister, Anna (Kemp) Moyer.

Born in 1929 and raised for a time by a single mother during the Depression era — his father left when Robert was 2, and his parents later divorced — Robert lived through lean times.

Why an American chestnut tree in Centreville is the 'holy grail' for conservationists

Guests are not allowed to view images in posts, please Register or Login


After the species was devastated by an Asian blight in the early 20th century, a single American chestnut tree in Centreville has been deemed a "precious resource" by the Delaware Nature Society.

Jim White, a senior fellow at the Delaware Nature Society, said the tree discovered at Coverdale Farm Preserve is the largest and oldest he's seen in his 50-year career.

"For people who are interested in trees, that's kind of a holy grail-type thing, to see a big American chestnut," he said. "I've never seen anything that size anywhere, and very few people have."

The tree is estimated to be about 50 years old and 70 feet tall, with a circumference of at least 35 inches, White said.

Gene editing could revive a nearly lost tree. Not everyone is on board.
Saving the American chestnut could restore a piece of history, resurrect a lost ecosystem and combat climate change. But critics say it would come at a cost.

>>>Kyra LoPiccolo crouched in front of a small, white foam box under the hot summer sun. She opened the cooler and from the ice plucked a tiny vial of pollen — a potential salve for an entire species.

Clasping a branch of a two-story American chestnut, LoPiccolo pulled out a delicate, yellow-dusted glass slide and rubbed the thawed pollen onto some of the tree's flowers. A few feet away and armed with another set of vials, a pair of colleagues at this field research station were aloft in a crane working on higher limbs.

However, for some outstanding reason Michigan's chestnut crop is resistant to the blight. Dennis Fulbright, a professor at Michigan State and a plant pathologist, has said that miraculously Michigan is home to the only chestnut trees with a naturally occurring biological control. For some reason, chestnut trees just seem to thrive in Michigan. It's a modern medical marvel!
