WRP Articles


Nancy and Bill Yates, from Farmington, New Hampshire, have a permanently-protected easement under WRP.  In July 2007, the American Chestnut Foundation cross-pollinated one of the blight-resistant trees from the Yates easement with the goal of increasing the resistance of this keystone species.  The healthy tree from the Yates property produced viable nuts that have been successfully propagated, and the trees are being used in the continued research to breed a resistant native chestnut.
