Has anyone ever followed the almanac on moon phases for logging timber? I was curious as to when timber should be logged and was doing some research and read a little about the moon and its phases effecting sap flow. Just curious? :blink:

That sounds just about crazy enough to make sense. If it can sway & lift the oceans, it surely could affect sap flow.

There are many, many, did I mention MANY arguments over IF it effects sap. I'm with qbuilder IF it can do that to the oceans why not.

There's a large discussion/thread on woodweb.com and probably one here.
I honestly believe it does effect it....I'm from the hills and country folk have always claimed this...but then we've always done things without scientific facts...IF it works , WHY break it !! LOL
