I have a friend that has a Chinese Chestnut tree in his yard that is fairly large. Maybe 24” in diameter. He said I could have to mill if I wanted it. I was curious why these trees aren’t harvest for furniture makers. I would assume they have similar characteristics as American Chestnut trees had. Anyone with any experience w/ the Chinese Chestnut? Thanks.

There is not likely enough of them to make a commercial market as they are not native and the native chestnuts have been devastated by the chestnut blight.
