The chances are good that you know why there are no more of the magnificent chestnut trees that used to be common in New England and other parts of the country - the notorious chestnut blight. In the February 12 Earth Matters, contributor Reeve Gutsell tells us more of that story, and also relates how the great trees may yet return to our forests.

P.S. If you’re unable to access the Gazette page, wait until Monday or Tuesday and go to the Hitchcock Center website, www.hitchcockcenter.org, where you’ll find the article on the home page.
