Old Acer Negundo Tree


Acer negundo is a small, usually fast-growing and fairly short-lived tree that grows up to 10–25 metres (33–82 ft) tall, with a trunk diameter of 30–50 centimetres (12–20 in), rarely up to 1 metre (3.3 ft) diameter. It often has several trunks and can form impenetrable thickets.


     
Other variant names, some of which are regional, include: In Canada it is commonly known as Manitoba Maple and occasionally as Elf Maple.Other names include Ash Maple, Ash-leaf Maple, Black Ash, California Boxelder, Cutleaf Maple, Cut-leaved Maple, Negundo Maple, Red River Maple, Stinking Ash, Sugar Ash, Three-leaved Maple, and Western Boxelder. In Russia it is called American Maple (Russianамериканский клён) as well as Ash-leaf Maple (Russianклён ясенелистный).


I'm a lucky man,
in the place where i'm living there are plenty of BoxElder tree,
used like ornament to the public garden...
Lately a lot have been cut,
i found a very old one,

and i have filled the garage
there is no place for whatever else,
is even hard to walk
and to clean after some turning...
it's a mess..
but how can i leave it out???

that have been cut for used to heat..
it was all done in irregular pieces,
and that was really pity, becouse if i had all the trunk in my hand i could have saved more nice pieces..
It have a lot of colours, from white sapwood to brown heart,

ain't turn a single piece of wood since end of july,
i never though that could happened,
but some woodworking, and now fruit picking took a lot of time,
finally decided to use this boxelder,
ain't that something???










Cheers
