I had a large holly cut off at 10' by the power company one year - this
was on the west coast in a redwood forest land. I went down with my
saw and got what was left. Got the rest as well later.
I turned the holly green - it was winter and almost dry as it was.
The grain was very beautiful - almost blond and tan - but stringy
in texture. I made a desk set for my wife and a pencil and clip holder
for myself. Turns nice. Holds form.
Have a small one in front of me on top of my desk - now 10 years later.
