I have recently come accross a black walnut tree that will be dropped in the next couple weeks. It is 19” diameter and 30ft tall. I have a big enough chainsaw and chainsaw mill jig attachment but this is the first time ever attempting milling “green” wood.

We cut this tree down in Feb and just got the video done. We slabed the burl and the logs in to counter top blanks and table blanks. We used my 088 stihl with a 36” and 72” bar. Also for the slabbing used the the 60” lucas mill slabber. The pic below the vid are 12’ slabs of the log. Enjoy and thanks for watchingGregwww.oregonburls.com
