A while ago I asked this list and also a woodworking
related list about varieties of apple and other
fruitwoods that would be worth growing for the wood, and most
of the answers that I got ignored my actual question,
but instead lectured me on marginally related topics.
Never did get any specific recommendations about
varieties to try to grow for wood. We need to replant some
trees in some fields that we have replanted to trees
for timber, and I thought it would be good to grow
something other than maple, oak, walnut, butternut, etc.,
especially as my son likes to carve spoons, turn
bowls, etc., and he finds that apple, lilac, and plum give
nice results. When friends need a tree removed for
any reason, we hope that they give him a call first, and
he usually rewards them with something made from the
tree he takes out.
We will be planting "generic" apple seedlings,
whatever comes up from last years fall plantings of seeds.
