I popped into hearnehardwoods...they have some really neat and exotic stuff, but one thing stuck out to me. They are selling Chinese elm (a common and obnoxious yard tree) for $10 bft . And it is warped and busted, picture below. I have felt about 1/2 guilty in the past for selling it for $1 bft. The tree services around here can't give the stuff away, I will take a log or 2 every once in awhile on a mixed load to keep them happy and bringing me free good logs.You might want to take a good long inhale of oxygen before you look at prices:yes::icon_smile:
Yes it does. It actually planes out very nice looking. It is a hard wood. It is just overlooked because it is so common around here I guess, and in tree form almost thought of as a pest (they are extremely messy, you are picking up sticks all the time). And the trees are not even attractive in my opinion.Does the wood stabilize out once it is seasoned properly, and acclimatised?
