My buddy, that's him there, has a new mill, a nice 36" wide one, and when I saw a Craigslist Ad for a "Free Apple Tree" I sent it to him. The limbs (in the ad photo) looked about 8 or 10" thick - so no problem, right? Here's what we found: a century old apple tree some 32" at the base, with three humongous limbs each at (perhaps) 18" in Diameter and about 12' tall. Now, maybe this happens to you all the time, but it was, by far, the biggest Apple tree I'd ever seen, much less harvested. Here in Oregon, on a river bank. It took everything we had, and I do mean everything, to get this all loaded. And yes, while I am ashamed of my back cut - a bit under-gunned with a 25" bar and some obstacles to avoid, the picture does nicely show there was some cool spalting (and some plain rot), still - I think he's going to be thrilled with some of the slabs he gets - hope so anyway! The rest - all burns. Right? Take care Friends!
