In real life, I'm a civil engineer - working mostly in land development and municipal projects. early this year I was fortunate enough to be able to harvest a large sycamore from one of my job sites. fortune has smiled on me again and I have a large number of trees that I am able to remove and keep, but they must be cut down in the next 2 weeks or less. I've already removed 2 large trees from this particular site, and estimate 10-12 more that I could remove and stockpile somewhere - the problem I face is - what is the best way to preserve the wood until I can get to it? The current project I'm dealing with has a 6 acre detention pond adjacent to a large creek, I've taken a white ash, cedar elm, hophornbeam and holly from the site. I still have several elms, hickorys, sweet gum, black gum and a large oak with a big burl on it to remove. These trees are old - the white ash was counted with 110 rings. I'd hate for them to be cut and just sold to the logger - and I have consent of the owner and general contractor to remove what I want. my shop runneth over, and my wife is starting to gripe that the "rest" of the family needs to be able to use the garage as well. suggestions?
