Looks more like American Chestnut. The leaves are longer and less oval shaped than the Chinese chestnut.

Couple of hints.
It's kinda rare anymore.
It's a great deer attractant

Chinese Chestnut. Those flowers smell like a combination of rotten grass and puke. They are in bloom now and I can smell them a mile away. One of the worst smells in the natural world in my opinion.

Yep, not pleasant but not too bad after they mature and fall off the tree. I got some very curly American Chestnut from a tree that was growing almost sideways. 24" dbh. Lots of stress but smaller, shorted pieces might nice.

American chestnut is fairly rare due to a disease that just about wipe them all out ( Ash will be the same way shortly) so most of what you see in edible chestnut variety is the Chinese one. Couple years back I managed to beat the varmints to a few horse chestnut seeds, which I intend to plant. They are buried somewhere in the mess from moving awhile back. These are not human edible but all the nuts always disappeared
