Siberian Elm, grain feature question
« on: September 13, 2018, 11:24:31 PM »
I was milling Siberian Elm logs today when I saw this unknown feature in two of the logs. They are tiny knots along the pith.  They are fairly evenly spaced, appear to be wood fiber (not metal or plastic like netting).  For reference, the board is about 15" wide, the knots are 2-3" apart.  Does anyone know what they are?

Is there any reason they would not have simply been small branches that were shed?

Yup, those were formed back in the old days when the tree was only a 1" dia sapling. Had all sorts of small branches sprouting off it. After a few years, the tree grew bigger, shed those twigs, and kept growing.

I've seen Lowe's lumber with what looks like the remnants of the trees first needs ingrained into the wood.
