    A friend of mine has a fallen tree with a 10'X3' trunk and another almost as big that needs to be removed from his property. If anyone in Texas (Geezer?) wants to drive for it, it's theirs. I would beg a stave or two off you but there is apparently a ton of wood there and I CAN'T GET TO IT!

    Pecan: No way! I'm allergic to the stuff, AND it's very-very hard. I'll stick with walnut and cherry, thank you. Still, it's beautiful wood and somebody will make something wonderful out of it.

    I hear ya Geezer, I like it for bows but I know you don't have much interest in building wood springs.

    Sory guys.....I don't get it.....'cause I'm translating FALLEN TREE and the translator brings back a tree who fall by, for exemple, a storm.....
    So, are you talking about a tree's name? Or what?

    Juancheco. You have it precisely. A tree fallen in storm. It's a pecan tree, closely related to Hickory. Hickory is good for bowstaves, very springy.
    The wood is very hard and rather heavy, but has interesting color and grain. I am allergic to both hickory and pecan... don't allow any to be worked in my shop. Geezer.
