Chestnut, American White Oak
"One of the most frequent species of tree in European forests, occurs mostly as pedunculate or sessile oak. The most well-known locations for high quality veneer oak are the Spessart and Palatinate in Germany and Troncais in France. Starting in the mid-nineties, imports from Eastern Europe have constantly been increasing due to extensive occurrences of oak forests there. Oak does not exist in Central and North Scandinavia. Very good girths (diameters from 0.80 m and more) open occur."
