Hi everyone. A timber framing friend of mine suggested I post this question on the forum. I live just outside of DC (Hyattsville MD) and have two dead ash trees (EAB) that are roughly 30 and 36 DBH respectively. I have a double lot and am interested in building a picket fence, using the wood from the two ash trees or trading the ash wood to someone for a different type of wood like oak or black locust (have heard ash is not too rot resistant).
I have contracted w an arborist to fell both trees this Friday (4-7-2017). Despite my best efforts using google search engine, I have not been able to locate a mobile sawyer. I found one guy but he is not very responsive and has not returned emails of texts in over a week. Does anyone know anyone out in the DC area who would be interested in earning some $ or trading wood to mill these trees for me? If so, please let me know!
