A common garden tree. Often planted by councils in streets and parks.

Grows like a weed apparently around Albury! Turns nice. Made a little box with it on the weekend. A bit prone to cracking with heat from sanding :doh: DAMHIK:rolleyes:

Do you want any for a particular reason? I have a little bit, and you are just down the road. I even go through Berwick on the way to work! :cool:

I only have a small piece with the bark on! :shrug: Looks a bit yellow though! :think: Could be Mulberry also! :pi: Although that often gets a gnarly top on it cos it gets pollarded. :shrug:
