There's a reason why I don't always answer the phone, doorbell or comments on forums.  :)

Chestnut... I would think yours is Chinese Chestnut, yes?  

Growing up, our Troop had a campground that abutted some old lumbering land.   It was a hike to the site, but worth it, we found. The dead American Chestnut stacked up was our prime fuel.  It was then more than 30 years old, but still very solid,  split and cut, it burned with a blue flame.  Very hot, coals for cooking.  Nothing like it since. 

One can still find American Chestnut stumps along the AT, in Shenandoah NP, elsewhere along the Appalachians,  the roots still send up a green shoot  which will grow for a year or two or even three  and then succumb to the blight .  But wait, there's more...
