>I got a call last night from a local tree guy saying that he is cutting down a golden locust tree this morning and wanted to know the best time for me to be there and direct the cutting of the burled trunk. I offered to pay the home owner for the tree but didn't think it would be cut before the end of the year. Now I will have to spend funds I need to cover other things before leaving on vacation Friday. Not enough time to sell some of the wood to recover the cost. I am so frazzled I almost backed out of the deal but wood lust overcame that idea.
Wondering why I am always broke in Longview, WA.
