well, where to start.
On Friday I called one of the forestry companies on the North Island and asked about good spots for yew wood. Talked with a really nice fellow who told me about a spot that the loggers had hauled some big yew onto the road and were cutting up for firewood.
Well.. I went there with a buddy today, worked for a couple hours and here is about half the wood. The other half is in the trailer. Planning on getting it milled up in to 2" thick planks.
wow. Going out again tomorrow to the other spot the forester mentioned.
