not sure if this is right category but that black walnut tree i felled last week-totally burned my arms.
i had NO idea it had such massive amounts of acid. i got what amounts to a ‘poison oak’ type rash with the itching and so forth. its like a BAD BAD BAD sunburn. swelling… 4-5 days of “fun”
BTW-last time i ever cut a walnut tree down!
i have logs and pieces of wood i am willing to cut out of the logs but no more live trees!
just a warning though-wear long sleeves and wash immediatly after cutting! OUCH!
i would show pics but… you dont wanna see. it also stained the edges of my hands black/yellow DAYS after i was done cutting. the stains showed up AFTER several days. not immediatly.
