For the past couple of days I’ve been poking around the internet looking for a website that shows both tree identification and the look of the lumber inside the tree. I’ve been able to find several sites that have a very nice collection of one, or the other, but not both.
I don’t need super-accurate listings – I’m not worried about it being extremely colour-accurate.
Mostly it’s for my own curiosity. I’ve been doing lots of exploring lately and am curious what trees are around me – and then naturally, I’m curious as to what the wood looks like inside. I don’t intend on cutting down any trees any time soon to utilise it. Likewise, it would be nice for me to have a stronger mental image of what the particular trees look like when I know what kind of lumber it is.
As I live in Michigan, I don’t really need information on trees that don’t grow here. Seems most of the places I can find good info focus on the exotics rather than the common trees.
