Around the end of WWI the forest service was asked to find a substitute for Ash as they were afraid the auto industry was going to deplete that supply. Just like with sports equipment in my years on this marble, maple was the next choice.Quote from: chet on March 02, 2024, 12:07:46 PMOne of the Elms I used to see around here was Winged Elm. Been many years since seeing one now.As long as we are in common name purgatory , another common name used here for that was Wahoo. Absolutely nobody knows that now. And so it goes.
Quote from: Wlmedley on March 02, 2024, 08:52:24 PMMy first experience with elm was I cut a couple at my mothers house that were starting to die and decided they might be good for firewood. Tried to split them and maul was constantly stuck.At this time they had just came out with the Monster Maul and I bought the biggest one they had.That did the trick and I split all my wood with it for the next 25 years.Probably why my shoulder hurts so bad today.
