Sorry for the slow response. I'm headed back to the farm tomorrow. I'll get a few more pictures.

The seed pods have one nut, about 3/4" in size. The leaves are 6 - 8 inches long.

Over the years I have saw several American Chestnut trees scattered through Middle and East Tn. Some were 12-14 inches in diameter. Found several good size trees in the GSMNP a few years ago. I found a small one during a botnany class and the grad assistant told me I was crazy. The leaf mysteriously disappeared between classes.

We are planning to cut some of the tall pines to bring in more light. Fortunately, we found the mate to the tree. Both seem to be doing well even while growing in limited sunlight. Here are a few pics showing the bark, leaves, and nuts.

I wonder when the trees will start dropping the nuts?

I wouldn't cut too much from around it. The fact that it had cover may have been protecting it.
