My fathers neighbor recently cut down one of his apple trees
And this morning my father called and wondered if i wanted to have some of it, so we went over and loaded it all up on the trailer, well all but 1 huge piece that must have weighed 300kg or so, unfortunately he had already promised that piece for his son -.- (probably gonna make firewood out of it cries)

So i got all the other large branches and stuff, some of it was rotten before they cut it down by the looks of it, and theres some sign of spalting too.

All of the little bits and pieces loaded up

The pile is thrown to the ground…

And the end grain shot, with some small amounts of spalting included

This should make some interesting pieces. Are you going to get some small slabs made or use it for turning?

the 2 larger ones in the second picture will definitely be cut into slabs, will have to see what i will do with the smaller ones later, but apple is quite fun to turn :D

Apple wood is also great for smoking fish and other meats so save the shavings and chips.

Great wood gloat!

Nice score on the apple.

Great catch. Glad that you keep your father in the wood scrounge loop.
