Chinese Chestnut trees?

I live in The Rivergreen subdivision , in Canton, Ga. My home is in the small community called Chestnut Glenn. My home borders the Audobon Nature trail, which is lined with beautiful Chestnut Trees. After some research I am assuming these are Chinese chestnuts and not Amaerican, which would be rare. Would love to know more about these trees, there origin,history,uses, etc.. Thank you

Laws regarding Bamboo

About 8 years ago, our neighbor planted some bamboo between our houses which I was not at all happy about. He finally moved and we should have taken that opportunity to rip out the forest it has become but we did not-"knowing" that the next owners would want to do that right away. Now we're not so sure. It is destroying our yard-we have had to hire a very expensive lawn service because we cannot keep up-we have a very large piece of property. Isn't it illegal to plant bamboo unless it is containerized? Very soon it will begin to destroy our driveway-can we sue them at that point? Is there anyway- we can make them get rid of it? Any laws on our side? Thank you so much.
