Two questions. 1. How would you rate Chinese chestnut for firewood? I may be able to work out a deal with a neighbor who is planning to cut down a couple of trees. 2. How many of you have an adverse reaction to Chinese chestnut trees in bloom? My wife and son and most people seem to find them almost without odor and mildly pleasant when sniffed up close. On the other hand, I can smell them from three blocks away and they remind me of badly rotting meat. The wife of a neighbor across the street (not the one with the chestnut trees) has the same reaction. I am eager to see these trees go.
