LOML told me today she'd seen some fresh-cut turning wood stacked on the curb about a half mile from our house. (I love that girl...she bird-dogs for turning wood now.) I went by the house this afternoon, and the girl who answered the door said it was there for the taking, so I did. I didn't take all of it, since I could only fit three pieces in my Ranger.
It's Siberian Elm, and it looks like the tree was dying, since there are a few punky-looking places. All three pieces are crotches. The big one is about 27" in diameter at the small end.
Here's the other end of that one...
Here's the big end of the mid-sized crotch. I didn't put the tape on it to see the size, but it'll be plenty big.
The smallest one is also pretty big, but small enough that I was able to load it without the lift gate.
I wouldn't have been able to roll the big one onto the lift gate had it not been for a couple young guys who drove by just as I was starting to load up. They wanted to also get some of the wood (for camping firewood), and were real happy when I said I didn't want it all. They helped me load my truck, I helped them load theirs, and we had the whole pile gone from the curb in minutes.
Dunno how good elm is to turn, but it was free, and I suspect I can at least get my money's worth out of it.
