Oh hey David, sorry I should have mentioned not all of that wood stacked along the fence is Mesquite, it’s stacked up against other species such as post oak, hackberry, Live Oak and China Berry some of that is to be thrown out it’s cracked to badly I didn’t get the chance to mill it before it cracked, I think what you are looking at is hackberry.

The Post and Live oak are going to the fireplace, they don’t play well with blades too dang hard, the hackberry is going to landfill to badly cracked but the china berry I just got so I might take it to the mill also.

If you’re looking to offload any, I’ve been making planes out of it. The stuff is wonderfully stable once dry and has a ratio of tangential-to-radial shrinkage of almost 1.0.

I took one down last week, I couldn’t handle trying to mow around it anymore with the ZTrac John Deere. Everytime I did I ended up with a half dozen holes in the tires. Then there was the episode of having a young branch come down on top of me. It died young, but retained all those darned thorns.
It is gone, I gave it to my boss to use for smoking brisket. It should last him a few years.

I’m so sick of that bush, and it’s gone forever!

I like your story – my first walnut tree was the only tree left on the lot when the house was built – a neighbor convinced the developer to leave it, I am now tending its two offspring and hope to get a pile of lumber someday.
Glad to see you are putting the wood to good use – looks like you will have a lot to work with.
I was also going to ask about the dog – I would guess at least half Keeshond, but looks larger than a typical purebred.

Keep us posted on the progress – I will be interested to hear how the milling and drying goes.
