Topic tags/keywords: question

We have a small plum tree(6” trunk) that has died. Is plum worth the effort to dry, and make some small projects out of? Does anyone work with fruit trees? I could probably end up with some peach also?

I just lost a peach tree, I’m planning on turning it. See what it looks like. I say give it a try and see what it looks like. Doesn’t cost you anything but time to see what it looks like.

Cherry and apple are fruit trees and you get some really nice wood from those, so why not plum?
