We found this tree while marking timber for harvest today. I believe this is an American Chestnut.

Did it have the blight? Any scaring? Can you get a close-up of the bark, leaves, and the bur? If it is an American that is a great find.

No signs of blight or scaring. There are weaker limbs due to over story trees taking away sun light. We are going back to the tree this Thursday morning. I'll get a few more pictures. Here's a pic of one of the seed pods. A few folks suggested a Allegeny Chinkapin tree. Either way, I'm tickled with the find.

It doesn't look like a chinkpin. Did the pod just have one seed in it?

Very interesting. I wonder if it is American. I have several on one of my properties, they get to about 20 feet, produce a few nuts, catch blight, die back to stump, and repeat the process all over again.
