First time at this forum so apologies in advance if this is posted in the wrong forum. I’m based in Toronto, Canada and have a very big, dying black walnut tree in my back garden. An arborist has been around and has indicated that it has to be taken down, so we’re starting on a process to get a permit to do so. So here’s the question—I’d rather not just waste the wood. It’d be great if it could be used to make something for the house or, failing that, used by someone with an interest in woodworking.
What’s the process I’d need to go through to do one or the other? Not being a woodworker myself, I have no idea how to even get started. Does the wood need to be milled? How would I find a mill? Does it need to be dried? Again, how?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
