I was walking around the property with a friend looking at a couple trees we might want to take down this winter. He commented on the bird's eye maples I have on the lot (3 or 4 sugar maples with very distinct bark / patterns). Apparently this wood is sought after for things like musical instruments, etc. Without knowing any better, I might have one day cut them down and burned them. Anybody ever deal with this stuff? I thought I had pics on my phone but apparently not. I'll try to remember to grab some next time out.
