This is a black cherry log covered in ivy . The tree was being cut down at a law firm on College av near downtown Rock Hill . I was working on the house behind it and noticed the tree cutters at work .
Mr floyd and his crew were more than happy to give me as much of the tree as i wanted . They knew the beauty and value of the wood inside and hated grinding up and landfilling this giant .
I am thankful for their gift and their helping me to load the monster logs .
this is part of my wood stash , the big cedar and a very big black cherry are stacked to stay dry along with several benches in various stages of completion . this view is looking south into the "black forest" . everyone around us has cut their timber , so all the standing trees you see are on our property
