Quote from: Don_P on December 30, 2009, 10:44:23 PMI was going to comment earlier on how nice the logs looked. Ours tend to grow like weeds for about 25 years and then they hit the bones of the mountain, growth rate drops in half from then on. In a small to medium sized log I would have more sapwood than that. Those had nice moderately slow uniform growth.This does lead to a question . How long does a typical white pine cell live?
