When to cut trees
[Return to Topics]

I'm eager to start adding on to my stable. I have several poplar trees on the place. I was wondering if anyone knew the best time to cut these trees. I'm planning on cutting them to length and using them as posts. Thanks

i want to cut a fruitless mulberry. how far down do you cut the main branches and sucker branches so it can start over. it is looking pretty bad so i want to butcher itw/ out killing it. can i do that?

Summer time. Between june and august. But if what you want to get rid of them maybe you should get them cut in the winter.

When it comes to popple trees, the sooner the better. They won't make very good posts, though.

I'm guessing he's talking about Yellow Poplar, not popple. Different species entirely.

Here's a link to a very helpful site on the web dealing with wood. Woodweb. Ask your question on the sawing and drying forum. The moderator is Gene Wengert. Smart man when it comes to wood and its uses.
