Chestnut belongs to the Fagaceae family. Semi-hard essence with a dense grain, it is a precious, light wood with a strong resistance to humidity and atmospheric agents. The European chestnut is one of the most valuable and has one of the lowest shrinkage and expansion coefficients, it does not need any treatment as it contains a natural substance, tannin, which protects it from fungi and bacteria, thus making it more durable. Furthermore, it is characterized by an early formation of the heartwood (the innermost portion of the trunk) compared to the sapwood (the part of the trunk just below the bark) which makes it very resistant. It is characterized by a brown color, because it forms and darkens faster than other chestnuts.
