I have a large cottonwood tree too close to the house. I know nothing of cottonwood. What you would you be willing to share with me about how to handle fresh cut cottonwood ! I have googled it and found more negatives about cottonwood than positives….thanks Don Schneider, Havana Fl. Porchfish @ porchfish studio
