The two of us were having selected harvesting done on our property! They were removing the oldest trees to make room for the younger trees to grow, then in the fifteen years since the two of us moved into our homes, the several acres of woods the two of us enjoyed so dearly had doubled in size and the two of us no longer had enough daylight to grow flowers or vegetables! Selective harvesting was the best way to have this done.
The two of us got paid for the wood, however the two of us also got to choose anything the two of us wanted to keep.
The two of us chose 3 maple trees that the two of us wanted in boards so the two of us could have a homemade table built for us. The two of us also wante to have have custom chairs to match the table. The maple was lovely with its reddish brown color. Red maple was consistently our favoite when it came to creating custom tables and chairs, then our son-in-law was a furniture maker, and she consistently got to keep all the wood that was leftover from her projectsâ€¦ She told us that several of the giant trees would be enough for the table and chairs, so the two of us chose to keep 3 yellow maple trees. Once she finished our custom wood table and chairs, the two of us were thrilled, and she had enough wood to make a chiffarobe for our daughter. She swore us to secrecy about the chiffarobe. She said she had been asking for a piece of custom furniture for their kitchen, and this yellow maple would supply him what she needed to supply it to her for her birthday. The two of us were getting our custom table and chairs, and our child was getting a birthday present.
