    Yep. Plenty of them in PNW. Giants on coast. Those must be fire or bug kill.

    Yep it is what happens when the tree huggers dictate policies based on pure emotion but absolutely no science. Then mother nature takes over- fire- then special interests take over , hire lawyers, drag salvage sales out till the resource is wasted then drop the suit. Montana is trying to pass legislation that makes them pay both sides and the state cost for such shenanigans.....

    Yes, it's frustrating. In the Rio grande national forest since 2006 they estimate there's 588,000 acres of beetle kill. They plan to cut 14,000 of that in 10 years. In half that time a majority will be deteriorated so they will no longer be of any use except cellulose. They should at least haul them for home logs.

    I wish it could get better... Unfortunately probably not very soon though. It's sad to see the old giants go in fires that are larger than they naturally would be. Not to mention homes and livelihoods

    Jeff,

    Are they galls, canker or burls? Either and any, I would love to add a piece to my wood collection as a reference. If you have any for sale, please tag me. Thank you.

    @Mr. Peet They're burls. Yeah I can get you a piece it will probably be a couple of days though. I'll start a new thread and tag you, I'll try to find something else too you may not have also.
