I have never heard of Beech Snap before, but that would describe the series of bumps all those Beech have. For what it is worth they are also short and stubby trees, but should be growing on pretty good soil. Gravelly Loam to the depth of three or four feet.

As for the Spalting, I too work a lot with that kind of wood. It is so beautiful with the mineral streaks and whatnot. I cut an apple tree a few years ago in hopes that it would spalt, but it did not happen. Beech on the other hand is very predictable. Her in humid coastal Maine anyway, give it a 12-14 months out in the field and you got some nice spalted beech.

As for drying beech, I lack a kiln so I air dry. I did hear though that kiln drying is very hard to accomplish, but has better results than air drying.
