Hello All. Having moved 6 years ago to a part of California with lots of orchards, I notice that most of these trees get hacked into fairly small lengths for firewood or just chipped. I've approached a couple orchardists who were replacing trees and asked them to save me a piece long enough for ribs and back and they didn't want to do it. Is there a reason these beautiful fruit trees are not being recovered for use? Cherry, peach, plum, pear, apple, walnut are all great woods, I don't care if it's for a guitar or not, it just seems such a waste.
