In spring and early summer there is a magnificant flower desplay, with white candle-like spikes surrounding the canopy. Autumn as every school child knows, offer up the conkers - a nut that is protected in a green, spiky capsule.  Every one who ever collected a Conker knows this large, spreading tree, with its lovely creamy/white 'candle flowers' that cover the tree in early summer and light up the May landscape. The leaves are deep green, turning a rustic amber colour in autumn.

Fully grown specimens require a lot of space but they make ideal park trees and grand avenues. The brittle timber is clean and white but it lacks strength. For internal shelving and fittings it has an advantage of being available in broad widths. It can be used out of doors for temporary things such as pallets.   Introduced shortly after 1616 from Albania Greece and Bulgaria horse chestnut has virtually become naturalized in Britain. It burns well but spits on an open fire.  The advantage of planting this tree, apart from its impressive size and rapid growth, is its ability to tolerate a wide range of poor soil types.
