Excerpt from Hand Book for Hardwood Lumbermen: Containing Rules for Inspection
Timber, selected for durability, should not be felled while the sap is ﬂowing. The nearer maturity, the more durable the wood. Timber, which has passed maturity and is on the decline, is of inferior quality, and, in some kinds, the wood near the bark will be brash, with occa sioual doted spots or streaks. White Ash tim ber, which is on the decline, frequently shows doted spots soon after maturity, and, if a branch or the bark has been torn off, a streak will sometimes extend quite a distance along the body of the tree.
The condition of timber may be ascertained by the color and the amount of the foliage, by the bark, and by the general appearance of the trees.
