My name is Chuck Carnahan and this Summer, I'm going on a little walk to raise funds for a very special cause.

The drive from Columbus to Nova, OH is only about an hour and a half but this Summer I will walk from the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, 85 miles north to Nova in search of the last living tree planted by Johnny Appleseed. American Forests, America's oldest historic tree registry, has kindly donated a live rooted cutting from this tree, (Essentially a clone of the original tree) which I will then walk back to Columbus to be planted on the grounds of the Franklin Park Conservatory. In all, the trip will be about 170 miles and take 6 days. The twist however, is that I will make the entire trip with nothing but what I take with me from the beginning. Food, shelter, everything I use or need.

By donating below, you are not only helping to bring a piece of living American history to Columbus, you’re helping the American Cancer Society bring cancer treatments to thousands of people. Your donations will also help the Franklin Park Conservatory and American Forests keep tomorrow green for everyone!

All funds raised will go to the American Cancer Society, American Forests and the Franklin Park Conservatory.

And please check back for regular updates!!!

Today at the Algeo farm was so great. It started raining so they let me crash out on the couch. I almost hate to have to start the long walk home tomorrow.

  1. Congratulations Chuck!

    I'm doing a film about tree planting. Here is a short description of the film:

    100 Trees, a film by Matt Dubuque, showcases how various tree planting programs continue to directly benefit hundreds of millions of people today. The film features a wide variety of tree planting programs over the last 600 years, from 14th century Oxford University and 16th century Tokugawa Japan to the modern era. Additionally, the film chronicles the tree planting of the filmmaker from his youth to the present.

    Narrated primarily by schoolchildren, this film is appropriate for all ages and is intended for distribution in educational settings, film festivals and public television stations. Having a length of 22 minutes makes it an ideal format for classroom use and discussion, and it features exciting 3D graphics to help keep audiences engaged.

    Do you happen to have any photos of the tree I can use? The photos provided to me by the Algeo family are not the highest possible resolution, if you know what I mean.... thanks!
