Commonly found Cormier stock is 2 feet - 50cm wide. It’s usually from individuals growing in forests as opposed to decorative and isolated individuals. The “corme” fruit is nothing looked after and was mostly consumed in alcohol. No surprise.

That being said, I have a few sources, one of them having a website, in eastern France (actually the birth place of Charles de Gaulle, you could not have it more French than that): http://www.bois52-3apl.fr/
It’s a family business, ran by a guy that has done it all regarding wood and forests. I am not sure Cormier is part of the small pieces business they publish, but there is a lot in storage if some are interested. I can help if you need to get in touch and language is an issue.
