A customer called us recently with several Ash Trees that have fallen prey to the emerald ash borer. A total of four trees totaling ~1,500 board feet of sawn lumber were cut in one day. Some of the tree sections were lost to rot unfortunately, but we did our best to save as much as we could. We did have the privilege of sawing one of the best Ash trees we've seen this year. At 20' long, 27" in diameter and losing only 3" to taper over it's length, this was one impressive tree.
We are always in awe of the beauty in trees; so enjoy these photos of the fallen giant. Soon, they will meet a new life as a rich floor in this customer's home.
We were recently called in by a customer in Lake Geneva, WI to give new life to a large oak on his property. This Burr Oak, a member of the White Oak section Quercus, was struck by lightning recently unfortunately bringing its days as a shade tree to a close. Estimated at ~250 years old, it measured an average of 45 inches in diameter as the base of it's trunk. We used our chainsaw mill to rip the sections in half before moving them onto the sawmill.
We enjoyed working with our customer in his father; sharing the love for preservation and conservation with fellow woodworkers. Thank you for the opportunity!
The milling process of the two Elm trees we cut down was split across different days so here are some more pictures. This was from milling the largest of the two trees we cut last week. Do you have dead trees on your property? Give us a call and turn your trees into beautiful lumber.
