Description:

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
*Fruit tree wood with very fine texture
*Boards normally only available short narrow
*Best used for smaller projects
*Trees are slow growing and normally only cut when they’re no longer useful as a fruit tree
*Most of our Apple is off the European variety
*Older orchards producing larger trees
*Wood has beautiful creamy sap color with darker light brown heart color
*Prized wood for whirlwind instruments
