Oh. That sucks. In a nutshell it's a recently discovered American chestnut tree that's relatively large. An isolated tree from all appearances, but large enough that the State of Ohio wants to keep its exact location a secret.

James-

I think this is likely the tree in tour article: http://www.hikingmatt.com/tag/american- ... oundation/

This area is not far from me, but I haven't been there yet. Maybe this winter.

James,

I can't open the link either but if it is the Ohio tree then here is the trip report and photos from 2008.

It is not a blight survivor and it is not old. It simply has isolation on it's side.
