I awoke at 6:00am. I fired up the woodstove. After meditation and floor exercises, I made breakfast. After breakfast, I sat in my rocker next to the woodstove reading a short story in The New Yorker about a man whose wife moved him and his family, without his prior agreement, to a new apartment in a seedy section of town before he could finish listening to the daily evening newscasts of violence, tragedy, political disarray and human suffering to which he was addicted. I fired a few snap caps in my Ruger 77/44 carbine while peering through its peep site at targets of opportunity near the house. A couple of vehicles rolled by, probably pseudo-hunters scouting from the warmth of their trucks' cabs because it's rifle season for deer with no snow on the ground.

Now, I'm headed out to sharpen a saw chain and tree spade blade in preparation of moving a mature crabapple to a more convenient location for its owner.

It seems like a never ending supply thanks to the emerald ash beetle, still have a bunch of standing dead timber I need to get around to.

Yeah, almost all the firewood around here is ash.  I have a friend who figures he has more than 200 dead ash trees on his property that need to come down.  Fortunately, it burns well.

Don't neglect the potential for baseball bats, billy clubs and baskets. Tourists are always looking for local handicrafts, even online.  :laughing4-giggles:

I don't know.  I worked with a guy back in the 70's who sold ash bolts to Louisville Sluggers.  I seem to recall they wanted green wood milled a certain way so they could dry it themselves.  Dead wood is pretty much useless for anything beyond firewood. 

Don't the basket works use green wood too.  Seems to me it would split easier.

It isn't the Majors as the target market; it's tourists. A disclaimer noting that the bat is a replica not to be use for competition, and children should not touch the baskets due to high staple count should do the trick. Look at how many folks buy medicine despite the dire side affect warnings. icon_cheers  The billy clubs should work out ok as is.
