This is really exciting, it would be great to see the Chestnut restored here.

The American chestnut was once a dominant species in the forests of the eastern United States; it accounted for 25 percent of the trees in the forest. A healthy one can grow more than 100 feet tall and measure 10 feet in diameter.

Interesting news, but time will tell how effective the wheat gene is, or if it messes with the tree's timber profile the way hybridizing with Chinese chestnut did.
