Pecan Block P485
2.4" x 2.6" x 8.5"
This is an eye-catching block of Pecan. It's a limb piece, cut from a small-diameter branch. We've trimmed off most of the bark. This piece has some pretty grain and lots of small branch buds that create interesting textures.
This piece has been air-dried to 12-14% moisture content. The branch pith is present and has some fine cracks that appear to be closed and tight. One end of the block is square with the dimensions measured. The other end is more rounded with a diameter of 2.3".
About the Tree
This Texas-grown Pecan tree was harvested in Fresno Texas in December, 2021. It was in a residential neighborhood where it had been planted near a home that was built in the 1930s. Over the years, the small Pecan tree grew large, and it threatened the house. The homeowners reluctantly called their tree company to cut down the tree and stack the wood for us to recover. We're always happy to save wood from the firepit or city dump. Their tree is now yours to treasure!
