Chestnut tress were a common species here in the Appalachian mountains until the turn of the last century when nearly all of the trees were wiped out by a blight. Today all of the chestnut that is available is found on old barns, cabins, school houses, and other very old buildings. It was a commonly used wood 100 years ago but today it is highly sought after for it beauty and history. The wood that we use has lots of history and character. Nail holes and years of weathering are a common feature of the wood.
