I had a Holly tree cut up by a friend who had a sawmill. The boards are about 10’ long some are 2” and others are 1”. It was all stacked in my shop with other lumber put on top so it looks like it’s flat. I didn’t have any really bad splits. Nothing was put on the ends of the boards.

There is quite a lot of blue stain in the wood. It’s a fungis that causes staining and is the main reason why holly is not readally available. I’ve heard cut down, saw up and get in the kiln the same day. But thats not how loggers work. I heard others talk about microwaving holly wood. I don’t have any knowledge of that.

Here is a Holly table I made.
