Donna, that was a re-sent message because it got returned while Chris was tweaking things. The nice day was Saturday. Sunday was rain, wind, generally dismal. A lot of standing water everywhere.

interesting you had a nice day yesterday.... Here it rained on and off all day Saturday and Sunday with some wicked winds last evening. I think we ended up
with a little over 4 inches of rain here which cause some areas to flood.
(thankfully not right here) They are forcasting heavy rain later tonight and
again tomorrow....

I hope Gene is ok as I heard some of this nasty weather really impacted areas
around him....

sending again, was returned

Judy, that's a great idea, but I don't know of any such craftsman
and I don't really want to take the time to seek one out, especially since
there's nothing all that special about this wood.  All of these trees were
only about 15 years old. And much of the cherry was not very nice. I'm just glad someone could use it at least for firewood rather than sending it to a
landfill.  The city had recently come by to pick up the remnants from the
December storm (to which I'd added some earlier prunings).  That stuff got
chipped and taken to a location for mulch, but anything put out for trash
pickup
goes to the landfill. I just didn't get to these trimmings soon enough for it to go w the storm damage. It was a glorious 60 degrees, though overcast,
yesterday.  Great day to get that sort of work done.

If you have a craftsman in your area that does wood lamination or
marquetry
pieces, you might be able to sell it or give it to them. When we had
to
remove some cherry & English walnut trees, I found a craftsman at
a local
fair who was happy to have the wood for hauling it away. He even dug
out the
stump of the walnut. We had disposed of most of the small limbs, but
he said
anything over 2 inch diameter was useful for lamination or inlay work.
Dogwood is prized because it is very dense and a beautiful ivory
color.
Don't forget Daylight Savings Time starts tonight.
Judy B Z 6 Idaho where we have been 20F since Wednesday & it
snowed again
this evening. Thawed enough to melt the ice & snow off the roads
here in the
valley, but we're the low spot in the region.

A shame you lost them Gene.  These had some damage from the
December storm,
plus they had been causing more shade in combination w my
neighbors pine,
than I wanted.  I kept the redbuds, but thinned them by about a
1/3.  The
cherry was just poorly placed, growing through electric wires.
Birch too,
2 pieces broke over the wires.
I thought the redbud felt dense enough to provide a decent burn.
thanks.

Certainly, Kitty
Have in the past and will again. Nothing wrong with redbud.
Fairly
dense and burns just fine when dried. Between Ike last fall
and ice this
winter I will have some in my wood pile this fall. Lost 3
mature redbuds
up
on the hillside to Ike. Some smaller ones to the ice.
Wild cherry is great and smells good when burning.

burn redbud would?
I cut down a cherry (newport flowering plum), part of a birch,
and a
large
portion of a couple of  big redbuds.  A friend asked me for
the birch and
cherry to age for future use in a fireplace.  I asked if he
wanted the
redbud and he said he didn't know if it was good for using
that way. It
seems like fairly dense wood, as dense as the cherry, so
I'd think it
would
be ok.  Has anyone burned redbud before?
