Last of the Tree Logs

Philippines
September 15, 2017 1:16am CST
What they promised that they can get it done in three hours lasted almost four days already. At least that's what the woman thought of doing. They decided to finish it up and hopes to remove the logs from it. Unfortunately, The truck's tires broke and not sure if they can get it done soon. Though I'm expecting them around four this afternoon, I'm a bit pessimistic. Don't tree, we've planted some seeds and some of them have grown already. I just wanted this logs be taken care of, I couldn't my laundry with them around. The cutting cost half of my laundered clothes. I wonder what could be done with the bottom part. They could make a table with a roof though.

our santol tree was able to produce a set of chairs, a divan, and a side table with its trunk cut horizontally.

Hello @ridingbet Wow, are you still using those to this day? Mom's friend asked if they can make furnitures out of it but they said it's impossible with the mango tree.

As the looks of it, those who worked with the cutting of the tree and until the clearing of logs are government employees? Am I right LK?

HEY! @neildc They finally came and took out the logs, the co worker was late though. Nope I don't think so. But I could say they're from the Province and so good at it.

So the logs around you make you disturbed with the daily routine or works? Have you sold off the trees?

I don't think they can be sold or turned into something else @Sreekala

OMG, this must be the biggest mango tree I have ever seen. The ones I have seen so far, they are all skinny!

Hello @YrNemo Maybe those you've seen were newly planted and not like this one.

You could use the trunks as bench or as garden pieces. Some craftsmen would need it for woodcarvings. You can sell them.

Hello @acelawrites That's a great idea as well, but mom prefers to have it turned into a bench instead.

The bottom might be good for a bench, it depends with the size though

Mangoes wood is taken less for furniture here. It would be a good fire wood .
