Applewood

Some of the old apple trees at my house. This is not a noose but a hammock hanger for use with a stick.

 

The second tree to fall this season, which you heard about, is the small, black, irregular spot 3/4 way up the page on the right. You have not heard about a third tree I lost this season.  It was on the Friday storm a few weeks back where I worked on a Saturday instead. A large spruce blew down, broke off a foot off the ground rather than pulled up from the roots.  I am glad of that because it is the big tree in the middle of my lily of the valley patch.

 

I wish some of the old timer men with old portable sawmills were still available to take these large very perfect spruce I have. Same with cutting up perfectly good apple wood from the previous two fallen trees for firewood. It could be used as wood for smoking fish or meat, or wood for flutes. Artizans like carvers and bowl makers who would like wood with heartwood could have it. I do have a bowl maker friend I could ask.

Looks like a wonderful playground for the grandkids and the cats...
Mary MacADNski: There was a treehouse in one of the trees but it is gone now.
The wood is so beautiful... I hope you can have someone make use of the wood...
Mary MacADNski: To lose this many big/old trees in one year is a disaster.
What a beautiful orchard, Mary. I hope you find the right artisans for your gorgeous trees!
Mary MacADNski: My friend who makes bowls is comin on Thursday
These old trees look great Mary, you are very fortunate.
Mary MacADNski: I am still planting new ones too and will plant to replace this disastrous winter.

You need a friend with a chainsaw to chop up the falling tree
Mary MacADNski: One has partly gone for firewood but I called my friend who makes bowls and he is coming in Thursday. Just need someone who wants free long spruce logs.

I love to see your old trees, Mary
Mary MacADNski: Such a strange composition with them looking so close together because of the long distance

We still have a fruit bowl from an old fallen tree, it is a great way to remember them.
Mary MacADNski: I called my bowl maker friend. He is coming over on Thursday.

Nice copse of trees. I bet a lot of nature moves around, in and among, these trees.
Mary MacADNski: Lots and lots, especially seen in old posts here on the blog.
Two very fine shots, to lose such trees is a tragedy, but that's the way things go in time.
Mary MacADNski: Same shot with a straight b/w conversion. This is my 34th year here and never have I lost so many trees in such a short period.
it looks like a nice spot overall, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Can you imagine this shot full of apple blossoms? I took a shot from the opposite end of the trees last year.
You must have a very large garden if it has all these trees in it.
Mary MacADNski: I have many trees and this is one small part of the yard, which we call it around here. A garden is something planted and harvested from to me. Of course I know it is all just colloquial differences.

I do hope you find someone to make use of the wood so that it can continue to give pleasure.
Mary MacADNski: I called my bowl maker friend and he is coming over on Thursday.

Great in black and white Mary
Mary MacADNski: It converted quite well.

You have a very extensive garden by the sound of it. Are there no tree surgeons (as we call them) to come in and cut the timber? Both the colour and the b&w versions have a lot going for them.
Mary MacADNski: I have already given it away as firewood with a lot of it gone. I should have called my friend earlier but |I trul;y hadn't thought of bowls at that time.
Amazing old trees! A craftsman is always looking for wood, in my experience!
Mary MacADNski: I wish I had thought of him earlier.
i love the shot of the old orchard Mary...
i so glad that you explained the rope....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: Yes, they are all over though only one is visible here.
trees a-toppling...!
Mary MacADNski: It has been crazy! Three in three months is a record.
