The Chestnut tree originally grew in much of the eastern United States, and up into southern Ontario. In the 1930's the chestnut blight spread through region which killed virtually all of the trees. While off shoots of the original trees still grow the blight kills them before they have a chance to mature. Scientists think they may have discovered naturally existing blight resistant trees, but only time will tell, The prime source of Chestnut today is reclaimed wood from old barns, and factory buildings.

General Description: The heartwood is a reddish-brown to grayish-brown in color, sapwood is lighter in color. The wood has a straight grain, that sometimes spirals. Due to large open pores the texture is considered course.
