The power company has informed me that it will be cutting down a small hackberry tree on my property and I have requested that they leave me anything over 4" in diameter. I have a 1 3/4 hp band saw that is supposed to be quite good at resawing along with a 3/4" 3 TPI blade. I have mostly worked with pine, cherry, and red oak. I have never worked with hackberry and have heard or seen little of it being worked. Does anyone have any experience with it or suggestions?
