    You must really like those hollow logs :rofl: :lol: Seriously though, they’d make some nice Swedish candles. I had a couple Red Maple logs like that. Stuff it full of little scraps and put it in the fire pit. Mine lasted a solid couple of hours.

    I have a couple hollow BL logs my wife is going to plant flowers in. Curious as to how long they will last.

    My folks had this Silver Maple cut down when I was just a youngster. The trunk was about 24’ long, it was pushing 48” dia. @ the base. My dad kept it for my sister & I to play in. The three forks on the top side were hollow also, big enough I could crawl thru them.
