Sweet chestnut is widely distributed in Europe and Asia. It was introduced into the UK by the Romans, probably as food for domestic animals.
The very narrow sapwood found with sweet chestnut is whitish to very light brown in colour while the heartwood is greyish brown to brown in colour, and may darken with age to dark brown.
Sweet chestnut wood is usually scattered with worm holes and the grain is normally straight, but may be spiral. The wood is fairly coarse to coarse in texture and growth rings are made conspicuous by several rows of large, distinct pores at the beginning of each year's growth.
