After this woods, I was really glad I always take extra bars, saws ,and chains. A good loader helps too. Yield was 6000 bdft in 100 logs of Hickory, Walnut, Kentucky Coffee Tree, Hackberry, and Tulip Poplar so the end result was good.

Do you have any of the Kentucky coffee milled? I would love to see a pic or two. I’ve seen them in the wild, but not sawn. They are not common here, but their is a small grove of them about 1/2 from me in a valley, next to a creek.

That coffee tree looks a lot like sort of dark ash. Am I seeing it right?

Hmmm. I am planning a lumber run down to Texas sometime. It is a bit like a dark Ash except the grain is so tight, it is probably a harder wood, I think it is more resistant to insects and rot, and the color has more pinks.
