About a month of so ago, my neighbor had a big cedar tree in his front
yard cut down. (At least, I'm almost certain it's a cedar.) I talked the
tree removal guys to leave the two biggest chunks of trunk-- about seven
feet long, a foot to two feet in diameter, roughly-- in my front yard.
I'd hoped to get it sawn into planks.
However, that's looking less and less likely. They're big and heavy, and
so I'd like to make the trunks available to anyone in the Philly area
who'd be willing to take them. I'm not asking for anything in exchange,
but if you have a sawmill and a kiln, I'd love to take maybe one or two
1-inch boards in trade.
I'm located in West Philadelphia, and if you're interested, email me at
