Help me Identify this Hardwood
« on: May 02, 2006, 01:28:19 PM »
Hi Everyone,

  Lost another tree in a wind storm. This looks like a chestnut but I have never seen any nuts on it and they're all supposed to be dead. 

thanks for the help

Stan

Not sure that leaf came from that tree.
Was it attached?

The leaf is american beech or chestnut. Chestnut leaves are only around 2 inches wide, beech is bigger. The tree looks like it could be chestnut, beech has smooth bark, even the old growth ones, unless diseased.
Move'n on.

The leaves look very similar but this is definately not beech.  I will get a better picture of the bark.  The heart wood is a very dark brown all through the tree.  Does chestnut look like that?

Well that log could certainly be chestnut with the brown heart. Chestnut is lighter than oak also.
Move'n on.
