As the timber has piled up in the yard over the winter, the log pile was starting to get a lot smaller. That trend ended last Saturday when our friend John Abazaid (woodboy) from Mayer Tree dropped of a splendid truckload of large diameter white oak logs. These logs will likely make up a lot of the Beal’s framing, deadwood, and heavy timber. An added surprise was this wonderful honeycomb John gave us. He said he finds it in downed trees a few times a year and that this came from a pine log that was about 60 feet up when the tree was standing.

Trees really are wonderful, and amazing. It is a privilege to work with wood and my many friends who, like myself, share a passion for it.   -Harold
