Yeah. Everybody should stop by and bore those trees. Then they would stay in the park.  ;D ;D

So, its easy money that makes them want to take the trees out of a park? If that's the deal, I agree with Beenthere's assessment. Park Trees as long as there is a park, and there is no safety, health or environmental reason for the trees to be cut, should be left in the park.

Yea, I'll hug a tree. You Bet.

Right Jeff.
We had a local county park with some nice walnut trees.
Some of them showed up missing one morning, and it had the end effect of a County decision to go ahead and cut the rest of the walnut trees (turned them all into firewood). The reasoning was that they didn't want any more stealing goin on. To me, and others, the trees were worth more staying in the park.

They could have left them there, and pounded 'em full of nails or drilled holes to render them useless to any thieves. Could have then enjoyed the trees in the park. That park, 30 years later, still is bare of trees.

I misunderstood the post that the walnut company wanted to buy the park trees. ::) ::)

They must have been very nice , because when i took a load of cants to the pallet mill last week , there sat a bundle of about 1000 bf of walnut.  I wish I could have bought them and brought them home with me.  I wish I would have at least made an offer.  Tim

Just about everyday on my commute home  I see tree service trucks coming out of the D.C. area loaded with walnut and cherry (as well as other species) up to 30" diameter.   All cut to nice firewood sized pieces ready for splitting.      :'(

I occasionally get calls to see if I want a tree or two.  But they're usually still standing and I don't cut anything down.  Way to much risk for me.    I just turned down 6 100' hickory trees that were being taken down in D.C.  by a tree service.  To far to go to get them, no local market for hickory, and I HATE TO SAW HICKORY !

This past weekend I made the rounds starting to collect all the down trees given to me over the past two or three months.  Came home with two 8' 24" diameter maple, one 17' 28" red oak,  and two 10' poplar logs.  I still have four 7'6" 24" diameter cherry, about twelve 12' 14" diameter ERC, a pile of large 12' poplar and one huge 5' diameter maple to pick up.   All for free except for the cherry.  That cost me 25 bf.  ;D
