The Hypothesis is that Tuber Melanosporum the truffle organism could displace The American Chestnut deleterious fungal organism Cryphonectria parasitica, an added benefit would be that this could also be a harvested crop as well.Perhaps inoculating American Chestnuts with a native truffle would also work to ward off the Cryphonectria parasitica? Tuber lyonii or the Pecan Tober might be a candidate to ward off Cryphonectria parasitica?

Tuber Melanosporum could also make a polyculture with Sugar Bush Sugar Maple trees and other commercial crops trees
