I was asked by someone to cut some American chestnut wood that came down in a storm. Thing is, I have no idea if this is in fact chestnut America or Chinese? Anyway to know for sure? This is what I have sawn so far

  Judging from the shortness of the logs and diameter, I would say Chinese. There aren't many American chestnuts that get that size in diameter and they don't fork that soon.

Thank you. It may very well be Chinese. I was concerned that it was even chestnut! However, they came and picked this wood up yesterday and told me they had been eating chestnuts off this tree for years so at least I feel good about it being chestnut!
