    Morus rubra and Liquidambar styraciflua

    Traveld to Columbia Mo. to be with my Mother in Law for Thanksgiving.
    The tree-service chainsaw had been busy. The street is lined with Sweetgum trees so I helped myself to the cut logs along the curb.

    A fraternity parking lot had a very fresh cut mulberry tree cut and sized on the ground. No students around so again I helped myself. I had eaten mulberries earlier in the year from the same tree.. good stuff.

    Returned home to SW Mo and cut the pith out and Achorsealed some of the logs.

    Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it
    still sings!

    Nice haul. Don't you love that hydraulic cart...they are such back savers. If I had used mine a few months ago when I should have, it would have saved me from this hernia scar

    Dan: it wil last awhile .... I did not get but a few pieces ... Too heavy.. So I cherry picked. REAL heavy!

    Ted I use the cart for many things. .. Kind of wish I had two of them.

    Thanks to all for looking and sharing.

    Nice haul.
    You can tell an obsessed woodturner/worker by the fact he carries a chain saw everywhere.
    Tell us more, with pics, about the hydraulic cart.
