Maples And Birch


American Chestnut is a light to medium brown, darkening to a reddish brown with age. Narrow sapwood is well-defined and is pale white to light brown, wormy Chestnut is also seen, which is chestnut that has been damaged by insects, leaving holes and other discolouration in the wood. The grain is straight to spiral or interlocked with a coarse and uneven texture.

Because of the blight wiping out nearly of all mature American Chestnut trees the timber is rare so very expensive and not available in the UK.
