    friday the 11th my white whale finally landed. the burl tree at the BofA finally came down. top was dead, had been looking at this tree for 4 years waiting for them to decide to replace it. i'll be adding a post in wood id with pictures of leaves thorns bark and wood so the general consensus on species may be achieved. landscape team and tree team took it down all we had to do was load the logs on the trailer. reasonably sure it's a huisache hybrid since it clearly is a not mesquite wood. the thorns and leaf structure are not like all of the landscape huisache we have here.

    Trev,
    Let me know if you have any interest in a trade for some of this. If you do I'll create a thread in the "Trade" section and we can figure out what works for both of us. This is some wild looking stuff!

    Congrats! I know you’ve been coveting that tree for a while.

    Looking forward to seeing the processing pics!
