An old growth red cedar snag
to make blocks from trees that have already fallen, or from
standing snags. The snag is a dead tree, with no green
whatsoever on it, no live limbs. These snags are very
dangerous to fall. They may crumble while being cut, and
come down on top of the man falling them. These fallers
are one step above the norm.
The blocks you see here are cut 24" long. They are
tight grain, old growth red cedar. Perfect wood for
a Perfect shingle product. To be ready for delivery
to the mill, they chop out any big knots, and cut away the
that dark center or heart.
