Well – here we have a maple monstrosity! IDK what this sucker weighs but we had to chip off a few small chunks to lighten it for a Ford 555 to lift it. We split about 1/4 off the main trunk and the cut the front hollow section off. Fortunately we had the help of an excavator w/ a grippy-grabber (technical term) to hoist it off at the mill.
This seems to contain burl, curl, and some misc other malformations. We have no idea yet what is inside – we will find out when we cut it open!
