The American chestnut grows most readily in the Appalachia mountains but there are also other types like the Chinese chestnut that grow in China. The trees are normally hybrids now due to a blight that decimated a large majority of the American chestnuts.
Chestnut trees grow in temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Within 40 years of the start of the 1900s, the American Chestnut population was devastated by a fungal disease. They were most common in the Appalachian Mountains – one in every four trees was a Chestnut. Today the US produces less than 1 percent of total world production, with most imports coming from Italy.
