Springtime is more beautiful at Gadsden State Community College (GSCC) this year, thanks to a Good Roots grant from the Alabama Power Foundation.

Eleven small American chestnut trees grace the entryway of the GSCC campus, compliments of the Good Roots program and plantings in February by members of the college’s Good Roots committee. The saplings, produced at a nursery in northern Georgia, are growing well.

“So far, they’re all thriving. We are excited,” said Teresa Rhea, retired dean of Enrollment and Retention at GSCC. She helped with the project, an extension of the GSCC’s Green Space Project. The work is part of the college’s conservation efforts to reintroduce the species, once prevalent throughout the country.
