I was on the west coast last week, and just happened across this fine maple burl. My wife figured, even with my 371 Husky, and its 30" bar, I couldn't get this thing on the ground, get the burl removed, and outta there before the Mounties showed up! I bet I coulda!! Crap!!

Wow!

I had a friend tagged in a Facebook picture once, they were in Austin, and there weren't even people in the picture. It was a picture his girlfriend took of a "ugly tree". About a 6ft pecan burl. I called him immediately and said "WHERE IS THAT!?" and he said, "I dunno, I don't remember where we were". One man's treasure, right?

I walked by the damn thing, checking the canopy, trunk lean, fall area, the whole shooting match! Wouldn't even need wedges! It even turns in like the small one on the top, to about 2" diameter at the base. About the same size as the "waist" of that one at my daughters shoulders. I had to walk away, muttering, with my eye twitching, and drool running out of the corner of my mouth!! Took two cups of coffee and a slice of cheese cake to make me walk away! :lol2: :censored:

Just wait for a storm. Have the raincoats ready, and work fast. :goodevil:
