We have to replace our septic, and the new location will require us to cut down a crab apple tree. The main trunk is not more than 7 feet long and probably 10 inches or so in diameter. Its also not exactly round.

Perhaps good for turning? Maybe a couple planks? Thoughts, is it worth the effort to try and dry out?

And sorry, the pic is sideaays.

I got a couple small ones that were killed by Katrina that had some awesome grain.

Apple is good stuff. Try and preserve as much as you can. Saw handles are a particularly good use for it.

If you have an excavator there can you try to transplant it?
