Wood – Furniture

Q: Is there someone you can recommend that cuts down pecan tree to use the wood and make furniture?

A: Your pecan likely not worth anything. The time, effort and liability exposure are too great for a hobbyist woodworker to consider cutting it down. The wood would have to be milled into planks and carefully dried to prevent cracking. This can take years. Can you guarantee that your tree is completely free of nails so the woodworker won’t be injured when sawing it? I hear that pecan firewood smoke smells like roasting pecans!
