NUMBER 5-CHESTNUT OAK

     Here you will find the chestnut oak trees. The bark from the chestnut oak is one of the highest in tannic acid content. The farmers used this back in the early days, they would strip the bark from the tree and shred it in a tanbark mill and dumped into a vat of water, it forms a semi-liquid ooze. This was what transformed hide into leather. A large hide may take several months to tan where as a smaller would take less time.
