I love chestnuts! I'll have to watch out for this tree around Portland. Thanks for the identification tip!
Such a beautiful site in full flower. I came across a chestnut tree in SE Ohio as well today. It was really large and it had produced a great amount of fruit. I was hoping it was an American chestnut as there are still some resistant trees around. Instead, it was a chinese chestnut upon close inspection of the bud. Great blog here, thanks for sharing!
