Honoring the tree... Gnarly Hickory

Several years ago we helped my cousin clear some property to build a new home.  It was both hard work and fun hanging out that summer with family.  In the process we took home a few trunks from the larger trees to have cut into lumber.

Once we had a reasonable stack of logs we hired a sawyer with a portable mill to come and mill the logs for us.

One tree in particular: a gnarly hickory right in the center of their future driveway turned out to be a pretty prolific tree...
