While out deer hunting this Saturday, I came across a long, straight quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) that had been blown down by the nearly 2 weeks of high winds. Just wondering if anyone has worked with it before, and if so, how well does it machine and turn? is it well figured and take a stain well? I'd like to know if I should take the time to go chop it up or just leave it for the moss and fungus. Thanks

Is this on your property or someone else's property?

I have a lot of Aspen on my property. I would like to cut the new trees and some limbs to weave in a box type frame. These boxes would then be used for railing on my decks. I will need to use the wood while it is pliable. I have thought of soaking it in water. Does anyone have suggestions? Mary
