Ok, actually it’s cherry plum…..I think. All i know is this stuff is pink!
The phloem and cambium layers are bright pink while the sap and heartwood of the tree have streaks of pale pink, fingers crossed it doesn’t fade as it dries.
This tree has had a tough go at life and just doesn’t want to stay standing so i am dismantling it crook by crook. Here is one of the stars of the show:
I’m very excited to keep hacking at this tree. I can see so many spoons just waiting to jump out. Today i got 4 roughed out, all crazy bent spoons. (the above crook is the top spoon in the picture below)
It’s hard to see the pink color but it’s there. Better photos to follow…. -bk
