Dig a hole at least two or three times as wide and deep as the root ball. Take out the plant from the container and loosen roots to allow them to spread out in all direction. Cut possible broken roots. Mix the soil extracted with a substrate and fill part of the hole with the mixture obtained. Place the plant in the hole and cover with the remaining mixture. Compact the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.

Prefers cool, siliceous and well drained soils under temperate climates.

The chesnut is an edible fruit for humans but also for animals.

The leaves and bark are cough medicine, astringent and anti-diarrheal.

The wood is used in construction, carpentry and cabinet making.
