Walnut in todays sawmills
welli have a question i would like cleared up, and it could be helpful to others as well.. first thing is i am quite closse to a sawmill, and the recent deliverys of walnuts have been pretty small latyl alot are onle 12 to 14 inches that doesnt leave muche heart wood, so the question is i have heard that steaming will change the sap wood to a warm chaocalte color???? if that is the case then i can see why they are cutiin such small trees but if it doesnt then why cut them?? i recently cout one that was 16inches and it wont give me much heartwood but i needed the tree down so i am making the best of it.. so if anyone has the answer i am gratefulll happy easter to all who see's this its time for me to go eat
