Hi Matthew,

The locust logs that we are milling are from local (Warwick, NY area) downed trees.  Most of these have fallen over in storms.  We - New York Heartwoods - harvest some dying and diseased trees, but most of our logs come from municipal trees that would otherwise be processed into mulch (landfill) or firewood.

We currently have a couple logs that are large enough to mill into slabs, but most are better suited for smaller dimensional lumber.

How wonderful that you turn locust, it has such a gorgeous grain.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best,

Megan
