Apple wood Burrs planks and trunks. We have been clearing mature orchard in worcestershire we have some large trunks up to 28 inch dia. And approx 200 “lumps“of Burr. Should I have the burr planked or keep it in large sections.

By the way you've had a query on your post in the For Sale section

you would make more money selling it dry as most people wont like the risk of spending a lot of money for a piece of wood that is likely to split.
turners will use anything if the price is right :D

Apple is best turned wet because it is a hard one to dry without splitting and if you are going to dry it its best planked sealed spaced out to dry under a cover
