    I have a shag bark hickory that was cut down last spring just lying in the woods not sure how big the pieces are or in what condition they are in. I have a shag bark hickory along my driveway that could be cut down. probably about 14" in dia.
    I have 2 or 3 pine that I need cut down that are 3 feet in dia or bigger and 60 + feet tall if you know anyone who would like them.

    It almost looks like "diamond willow" that I have used, but I am not seeing any of the knots. Are you making walking sticks/staffs?

    I meant the ones in the second photo. Take a look for a book by Tom Wolfe on making carved walking sticks.

    Chuck, If you are looking for walking stick wood there are lots of "off brand" woods that I have used for this. Blue beech is real hard and has a 'muscled' appearance in the round. I also cut out ironwood (hop hornbeam) to remove it from the forest. Osage orange, locust, hackberry, and mulberry, also come to mind. Of course I have the usual walnut, cherry, maple, and elm, white ash, etc. Just where are these needing to be shipped?

    As far as the second picture, the bark is somewhat non-descript. What does the end grain look like. Better yet, slice off some bark and get into the wood for a picture.

    Difficult to say by just looking at the bark, but I could give a guess on the 3rd on the right being either Catalpa or Ailander. Most problably my guess is wrong.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Just to show how little I know, I thought hazelnuts came from a bush not a tree. Perhaps it's the local (PNW) variety???
