Disturbing ... and far below the radar where Pederson, Jackson and Hilton et al take up most of the bandwidth.

The good news is, disease resistant American Elms are already in production, see http://www.elmpost.org /.
The reintroduction of the American Chestnut is scheduled for 2007. The American Chestnut at one time was an incredibly prolific climax forest tree-- is is estimated that in our deciduous forests one tree in every four was an American Chestnut! For more info on the blight resistant chestnut, see http://www.elmpost.org/chestnut.htm
Of course it will be many years before either of those trees would be commercially available as timber.

As usual the problem is : a) money and b) time. It takes a little while to grow a tree. Not like wheat or soybeans at all. Chestnut was used for just about everything from fence posts to coffins to beams under houses to ----.
