Free Basswood - Anyone interested?
a beautiful hundred year-old basswood tree in my backyard has had to come down today. It was damaged by the high winds this afternoon. I hate to see all that wonderful, carvable wood go to the dump. Are there any woodcarvers out there who would like to come and pick up some? It has to be done asap, because the tree cutters will be cleaning up tomorrow. My address is 1106 Wolseley, at the foot of Greenwood St. though most of the wood is in my neighbour's yard. Call me immediately at 772-4851 if you're interested.
