Ashes to Ash (or Ash to Ashes)

Because of the impending visit of the emerald ash borer, we felt we had to take down a big, straight, beautiful ash that was close to the house. Down it came: cuts easily, splits beautifully, burns well. Still it was a shame to incinerate it when it could have become floors or cabinets. But it’s tough to find someone to haul a lone tree to a sawmill or to set up a portable mill for one tree. These are from last year, which means all this beautiful ash is now … ash.
