Hello LumberJocks,
I have a century oak on my property that sooner or later is going to have to be cut down. We have worked hard to save it (fertilized, trimmed, cabled, etc.) over the last 20+ years, but I’m afraid it is on it’s last leg.

The reason for my post is to see if the trunk of this tree has any value for size, burls, etc., and if so, what cautions should I use when the time comes to remove it. If there is value and a buyer for the trunk, what size (length) should the trunk cuts be; how to drop/store the trunk sections; and how to market it.

I hate to see this once-mighty Oak disappear forever, if it has some value and can be repurposed.


Have your say...
