Exposition Marrons et Châtaigniers

back to the list


The chestnut tree is typical for the Maures mountains. This exhibition explains the use of the wood and of the fruits.

The forests that the chestnut tree grows in are in fact orchards planted or grafted by man. There is nothing wild about it. Its wood has been used to make baskets, stakes, furniture, etc. But it is above all its fruit, sometimes called "chestnut", that has been favoured and transformed.
