You might try Central Park I hear there's a few rocks and sticks there.I couldnt find a decent looking dry stick or a rock here in NYC if I spent all day looking for one.
LOL, I hope you only mean this for manzy, because Wild, Wonderful West Virgina didn't get this slogan for no reason. :icon_mrgrSo while I could go on a 20 minute walk and come back with a full hardscape, somebody in, say, west virginia doesn't really have that luxury.
I hoped so. You cracked me up! Thanks for that. roud: I am super jealous of the manzanita. I would love to see pictures of it alive. I am off to google.Considering this is a manzanita thread... :hihi:
Haha, no you don't, more often than not they look like this!I hoped so. You cracked me up! Thanks for that. roud: I am super jealous of the manzanita. I would love to see pictures of it alive. I am off to google.
This is a stunning plant. No wonder we pay so much for the wood. Now I want a live one!
They look like the trees you find in haunted forests! I love it. :smile: Sorry about derailing the thread! I'll stop now. :redface:Haha, no you don't, more often than not they look like this!
No, not really, most people actually consider manzanita a weed/pest plant. My dad routinely had to clear trees from our property and burn them to make room for trees like pine and cedar, only for the field he cleared to be full of young manzanita trees again just a year or two later.I just hope that all the people who sell it are being responsible, and either collecting it from dead shrubs in the wild, or planting it specifically for harvesting and selling.
To think that people might be just going around chopping down all these various size trees, just for a swap n shop thread, that would be sad. So yeah, hopefully, there's just plenty of dead and dying branches out there in the wild.
That being said, NOTHING that I've seen has the kinds of twists, zigs, and zags that manzy branches have. Definitely not oak. So I don't fully understand what the OP is talking about.
As long as they're your own trees lol. Don't go cutting them on your neighbor's land without permission, or on public land...It's illegal even to remove the dead branches on public land without a permit. Technically the dirt on the bottoms of your shoes after a hike through the national forest is stolen property once you leave the forest! So...City Park isn't really a viable option. =)Trust me, it's no tragedy if somebody cuts down a tree or two
