Just be aware, that it was believed they had a blight resistant chestnut back in the late 40's, it got to 45 feet tall and over 7", then the blight got it around 1969.  :(
Move'n on.

Was the tree blighted before that or was that the first time blight was noticed on the tree?

The hybrid was from crossing a Chinese and an American chestnut, then the offspring back crossed with the American parent. As far as I can tell from the notes in the document below it was growing in with blight infected trees and later contracted the disease.
