Chestnut blight does not stay around because it lives on everything but 
because it attcks only the above ground portions of chestnut trees. 
When these trees reach 6-12" in diameter, they succumb to blight and 
die back to their roots. The trees then resprout from the living roots 
and start the cycle again, all the while keeping chestnut blight alive 
and well. There are myriad chestnut trees of various ages, but none 
more than about 12 inches in diameter, in the forests here in the 
Hudson Valley.
