Thanks planeman. The problem is, it’s tough to disambiguate between species, and regular old “hornbeam” is usually used to describe any of several variants, while hophornbeam is a specific subspecies. It gets more confusing because they’re all generally referred to as ironwood—an all-encompassing name that is also used to refer to a few other, totally unrelated species.

I actually do have one of my suppliers—a tree removal guy in the midwest who also runs a small but excellent lumbermill—looking for me. But the wait is killing me! It grows all around New England—I wish I had the gumption or equipment to just go out and cut one down and it to a mill.
