Properties and uses:
The magnificent foliage and the production of chestnuts in autumn make this a very interesting tree for parks and gardens. It can be planted alone or within a windbreak hedge. This tree is also important within forests, the wood is very hard and is therefore very good for making fence posts. It is also much used in carpentry. For the intensive production of sweet chestnuts, the varieties favoured are 'Marigoule', 'Maraval' and 'Comballe'.
