Apple trees are hard to find in a size large enough to produce lumber because the trees are usually pruned to keep the fruit low to the ground. When an American orchard has passed maturity the trees are often bull dozed over and burned. The Europeans hate to waste anything and will take the log harvest to a local sawmill where they will be turned into a lumber that will delight users for generations
