Chestnut Pair

American Chestnut is probably the rarest species that we offer. Before the chestnut blight, American Chestnut accounted for fully half of all the hardwood lumber by volume East of the Mississippi River. In other words, there was as much Chestnut as all the other hardwoods species combined. Our current stock comes from Minnesota, a grove that resisted the blight, until last year when the trees began to die. We have a good stock of both 4/4 and 8/4 lumber, including matched slabs.
