Chestnut was the Redwood of the Appalachins. The economy of this entire area was dependant on the chestnut, for food, for stock feed, for weather resistant lumber, for homes and construction. The fact that the loss of the chestnut happened to coinside with the great depression was a double whammy for the people who depended on it.
