It tells the story of Omar Tello, a former bank accountant who has dedicated his life to restoring a small piece of Ecuador’s lost Amazonian rainforest. The American Chestnut – There were once almost 4 billion American chestnuts and they were among the largest, tallest, and fastest-growing trees in the eastern forest. It was almost a perfect tree – that is, until it was virtually wiped out in 40 years by a blight that started just over a century ago. That blight has been called the greatest ecological disaster to strike the world’s forests in all of history. Boulder Rights of Nature
