Milling western red cedar

Recommended Posts

Very nice! 

 

I don't ever see western red cedar that size, but it almost looks like sequoia to me. The thickness of the bark and the size of the knots are the indicators, but very hard to tell from a photo.

Bloody hell! That's some size! 

 

As I said, I just don't see them that size. Have milled over 1000 tonnes of the stuff in the last 3 years, but nothing like that. Beautiful tree.

What remains off the trunk unfortunately has a lot of rot in it.
So had to be felled but one is stilling in the garden at about 80 to 90 ft high.
This one so i am told was 110 ft.IMG-20180708-WA0002.jpeg

I think you and Big J are right.  Coastal Redwood though not Sequoia.
