Hi all

my in-laws small (20ft tall) oak tree has sadly fallen down in their back garden and i'm keen to use as much of it as i can. I know it'll take a good few years to dry out but what do you suggest i do with it to get the best results?

Cheers, Yorkie

Good question. I haven't actually measured it but probably around 40-50cm. It grew at an angle of about 60-70 degrees I'm guessing. The branches were also all over the place

what is your interest- creating boards or turning?

Creating boards would be great but not sure if it can be done.

I'll try and post some pictures when I can and dimensions. Any parts suitable for turning I would be happy to give to those that want it.
