Topic tags/keywords: cedar question root roots stump root system oak wood


I am fairly new to woodworking. I am looking for a type of wood that has medium to large root sizes, that grows more out than deep, and the roots once dried would be able to be worked with. I thought maybe cedar would be a good choice?

Specifically, I am looking for possibly a cedar stump 1.5’ in diameter with about a 5’ diameter of good sized workable roots. Does anyone know where I can find this? (dimensions can vary).

I am in San Jose, CA and looking for somewhere fairly close but don’t mind traveling.

Thank you!

Spruce are noted for their shallow spreading roots. Cruise the neighborhood after a big storm you’ll find plenty.
