would be worth growing.

should I grow for the best (fastest, clearest, finest grain, etc) timber
results.  If I seriously want to plant black walnut, for example, I can find
out which varieties are best for timber, and which are best for nuts.  I'm
looking for similar information on pear, apple, apricot, plum, cherry, etc.
> We find that hickory trees are probably beyond their natural northern
range in our area--they will grow if planted, but you don't find any older
hickory trees around.  Butternut is common in our neighborhood, as is
basswood (have a couple of basswood trees sawn into boards and carving
blocks drying in the shed).
> We have some mulberries and some seedling apricots that have been growing
well, and that I may harvest for the wood.
> Speaking of apricot, I think that I got these from Bear Creek some years
ago.  Does anyone know of a current source of the siberian apricot
