    This is the base of that one that died just recently. Can't tell much other than it's dried and black and did this in like two weeks.

    I was in Minnesota Thursday thru Monday visiting my daughter and running my yellow lab on Sunday. Been slow to get back to normal. I hope some one can give feedback on your tree's trunk condition. I have no experience or knowledge to share on what I see in that photo.

    Forum members that have experience with American Chestnuts might be able to shed some light on your tree's condition.

    Good luck.

    I'm about to plant 21 chestnut seedlings. I plan on using mulch around each tree but what are the thoughts on using weed barrier cloth ? I read not to use it

    I imagine you have already planted and done what you thought best. I have been 100% involved with my two labs - running them in MS and then hosting an event here in TN on Sept 28th. Getting all of the results filed with the national organization takes some time on the post event side.

    Sorry I wasn't timely.

    Green grass and changing leaves. Must be nice to live where there is actually rain and normal weather.
