Thanks for trying, but this is a town of 400, more than a hundred miles
from anything that can even remotely be called a "suburb".
Being a tree on a 120 year old homeplace, it probably had seen a nail,
bullet, or BB on occasion.
The chemicals it might put out will be vented out the flue, and (given
the prevailing winds), right towards my mother's house. Thanks again!
Go get the pieces and make turnings, or gift/trade your turner friends.
The pieces with the wildest figure can be saved, even in short lengths, for
resawing into boxmaking veneer.
I watched a guy in Missouri feeding chunks of walnut of enviable size into
his boiler, and I burn cherry when I have too much on the deck, so perhaps
it's that location,location, location bit.
