That was informative. Thanks
Haven't seen a clear 2x4 or 2x6 in a long time. But I guess in compression i.e. verticle, it doesn't matter all that much. We generally use H joists and trusses which are engineered .
Been fun chatting with you here this evening, SD. Till next time....JM

Well conversations are like that , flowing along.
I found the bit about alder that I said I'd read. From one of my many favorite books:"The Wild Woods Guide--...Lore of theGreat North Woods"It says there is nodules on the roots that contain bacteria that take nitrogen from the air and transform it into ammonia which is a form of N that plants can use, It also says that the leaves contain 3-4 times as much N as other leaves and that the high nitrogen content of the leaves make them decay faster and those fallen leaves can provide 160 pounds per acre of N.And also the wood was used to make saw frames in the 1920's by Finnish lumbermen who said the wood had a spirit to keep them from cutting themselves.
