I have some extended family who farm pecans, walnuts, etc. I was thinking about seeing if they know of any orchards or individual trees getting pushed over to see if I could get some of the wood for another selfbow attempt. I know the walnut rootstock is the more coveted material for furniture makers but older trees usually get shredded up after they take the burls. Has anybody harvested farmed trees? I know that pecan and hickory are of the same genus but are there any quirks with the two species when it comes to getting staves from them?
