Americana and C. satim are large-sized trees, while C. pumila and C. crenata usually remain shrubby. The coarse-grained wood is much used for furniture, railway ties and fence-posts, as it is very durable in the soil. The Chestnut is exten- sively cultivated in Europe and E. Asia for its edible fruir. Itgrows best in well-drained soil on sunny slopes, and even in rather dry and rocky situations, but dis- likes limestone soil. Prop, by seeds, sown in fall where there is no danger of them being eaten by mice or squir- rels ; otherwise they should be stratified in boxes and buried 1 or 2 feet deep in a warm soil until early spring, when they are sown in rows about 3 inches deep. If growing well they can be transplanted the following fall or spring 2 or 3 feet apart from each other, and planted where they are to stand after three or four years. They are also increased by layers in moist soil. Varieties are usually worked on seedling stock or on sprouts by whip-grafting above the ground when the stock is just beginning to push into leaf. Crown-grafting, root-graft- ing and budding are also sometimes practiced, but no method gives wholly satisfactory results, and usually only one-half take well. See Chestnut. A.
