Chestnut wood is extremely rare due to the devastating airborne disease in the 1920’s that killed billions of chestnut trees along the Eastern seaboard. The chestnut tree was know to be so plentiful that its been reported that a “squirrel could jump from tree to tree from Maine to Georgia without touching the ground”. At one point there were approximately 4 billion chestnut trees in the east which were attacked by the Asian disease. The durable, rot resistant chestnut wood was used in the building of homes and barns, railroad ties, and the nuts were gathered for feeding livestock. A highly dense and durable wood, chestnut is fabulous for anyone wanting an exceptional wood that is highly durable and can withstand heavy use.
