I would imagine that Paul or Caleb can help with this hehe!  We are in the Bitterroot and live on my mother's property, and there is a large Green Ash tree in our front yard that is, according to Northwest Energy's Arborist, a danger if it fell on the power lines.  Indeed, it is old and I have been observing this tree over time and as much as I love it, I think it is about done.

While I know it would make super-awesome firewood, I was thinking that maybe others know what it could be used for.  We are not woodworkers (with the exception of debarking and shaping super-small pieces) and wondered if anyone could (a) specify some alternative uses, or (b) let us know if you WANT it for something that you do.  I am sure a trade could be worked out somehow, since my mom needs work on her properties.

Northwestern says they will be back this direction in a couple of weeks, and before I posted this on Craig's List, I wanted to see what the super-cool folks here would say first - thanks!

Well, it appears the use will be firewood then, unless someone speaks up in time.  I know the cutting will be sometime in the next week or two, and while I will be periodically away from the computer (back and forth if you will), I will check and see if anyone is interested.  Thanks!
 
I have gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, keep me here with this tiny ad:
