From The Arborist’s Desk: Florida Slash Pine
Did you know that the tree that we remove for you, is not at its end of usefulness or going to waste. After removal, the removed tree can have many lives depending on the manner of disposal. For instance, the Florida Slash Pine commonly known in the lumber industry as yellow pine or knotty pine, is commonly used in furniture manufacturing. However, because of the sap content it is extremely hard to dry in Florida. Most land clearing companies, if using the wood for manufacturing, send the logs out of state to dryer climate. If you are keeping the wood in this climate you are required to use a kiln to heat and de-humidify as air drying the wood is not effective. Failure to do so will cause cracks and warping, causing the wood to be unusable or hard to work with.
