Easton's Bible Dictionary
Chestnut tree: (Hebrews 'armon; i.e., "naked"), mentioned in connection with Jacob's artifice regarding the cattle (Genesis 30:37). It is one of the trees of which, because of its strength and beauty, the Assyrian empire is likened (Ezek. 31:8; R.V., "plane trees"). It is probably the Oriental plane tree (Platanus orientalis) that is intended. It is a characteristic of this tree that it annually sheds its outer bark, becomes "naked." The chestnut tree proper is not a native of Palestine.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (n.) The edible nut of a forest tree (Castanea vesca) of Europe and America. Commonly two or more of the nuts grow in a prickly bur.

2. (n.) The tree itself, or its light, coarse-grained timber, used for ornamental work, furniture, etc.

3. (n.) A bright brown color, like that of the nut.

4. (n.) The horse chestnut (often so used in England).

5. (n.) One of the round, or oval, horny plates on the inner sides of the legs of the horse, and allied animals.

6. (n.) An old joke or story.

7. (a.) of the color of a chestnut; of a reddish brown color; as, chestnut curls.
