Not Walnut

Recommended Posts

I've had a call from a guy who has a fallen Walnut he wants me to mill.

However, looking at the photos he sent, it ain't Walnut!

 

You may be tempted but please DON"T post THAT youtube video !

Walnut and Sweet Chestnut leaves are sort of similar although the nuts are obviously not. He may have just checked the leaf. Walnut bark is much smoother than that so not Walnut!

I’m going to further focus my stated species and suggest it is a red horse chestnut (smooth conkers that the owner may have mistaken for walnuts innit!)...
