Similarly to the American chestnut trees, the chestnuts of Europe also struggled to overcome the blight- it was the application of these hypovirulent blight strains that led to their eventual turn towards recovery. This is slightly more difficult to reproduce in America- with the virus effectively curbing the reproduction of the fungus it infects, the survivable strains of blight don't spread very quickly on their own!

Additionally, since the chestnuts here were so vast in numbers, the blight fungus mutated into new strains more readily. It takes careful research and testing to have an effective virus cocktail against each new type of blight. :'(


Without the drive to fund these highly involved mass-inoculation projects in the states, America has been unable to produce such fantastic results.... so far 👀
