  That's the way them logs should all grow.  Then when you put them on the mill they would lay flat on the bunks.

Had similar thing with macrocarpa cypress  logs...
It's good with a swingmill, sits on the bunks nice and straight and once you skim an inch off the top you are into good boards  :)
All trees should grow that way  ;D
