Just had a call from a Newfoundland boatbuilder suggesting that it might be worth calling the City of Halifax clean-up crews to see what was happening to the downed oaks from Point Pleasant Park. Since we are in BC I'm not even going to think about shipping lumber that far - we have local oak sources anyway. But you guys in Nova Scotia..? I said I would pass along his suggestion to this forum.

Good luck to all of you clearing up.

I would think that someone already has 'dubs' on that lumber.If I recall they had alot of offers to cut it down when the beetle scare was around and they had a band saw mill cutting some of it up then.
IRVING Lumber name seems to have surfaced before and I am sure it will again.
Should be able to buy it from them!!!

the problem is, city works are cutting the trees into four foot lenghts. not much good for anyone inless your doing cabin work.
