I must remove a Pyracantha ‘Tree’ and want to find if the wood is suitable for any type of woodworking project.
The only information found on line refers to the item as a ‘shrub that never exceed 8’ in height nor 2” in stem diameter.
I can tell you the tree coming out will have a lot of 5”/6” trunk wood and it is currently in excess of 18’ in height. If it has any redeeming value, I will save some/most/all of the wood. Otherwise, thru the chipper and into the bin it goes.

How did this turn out? I’ve never heard of pyracantha wood, could you post pictures of it?

Sorry, but I have not yet removed the schrub [tree]. It has grown into the power lines at my daughter’s home. We waited months for the power company to finally remove the limbs from the power lines. I will get to the removal early fall, if all goes well.
