Chocolate brown elm log

We had a call about this elm log which was coming down at an estate in Scotland. It is chocolate brown in colour which is unusual and very large. We have now had it milled and have stacked it up with sticks between the boards to allow them to air dry before it goes in the kiln.

 Our tree surgeon with the log, due to the width of the log it was necessary to mill one side flat before commencing cutting through the log generally to get the boards.
