Hello everyone, I found a tree in my neighborhood (Brooklyn, NY)
that has been cut down. The tree is not really green - or is
that just a descriptive term for a tree that has been recently
cut? It was a very large, tree, if the base were hollowed out I
would fit inside of it, and I am not a small person. It was a
deciduous tree, although I don’t know what species(?). There are
mostly oaks around it so I assume that’s what it is.
I brought home a piece of a branch that is approximately 10"-12"
in diameter. I want to go back to get a larger diameter piece (I
need help to get it home), and want to know if I can age/season
(correct me if this is not the right term) so I can use it in my
workshop for stakes, hammering, etc.
How do I prepare this for use, or where can I acquire a stump
that would be suited to my intended uses?
