"The chestnut blight is of Asian origin and was transported to the Northeast in 1876 on Castanea crenata, resistant Japanese chestnut trees for ornamental trade.... Within 50 years, Castanea dentata, the dominant upland forest tree species from Maine to Mississippi... was functionally eliminated from the eastern deciduous forest ecosystem." — Douglas W. Tallamy, Bringing Nature Home
