    2. That so called "sand" out in the desert in Saudi Arabia feels like talcum powder in your hands from millennia of being wind blown and polished and pollutes everything. It wreaks havoc with aircraft. Saudi Arabia has to import all the sand it uses to make concrete because that stuff is useless. It's ironic to be out in the middle of the desert and see a truckload of sand go by.

  5. Is that water, or sap, in number one?

    Certainly appears to be a lot of it!

    1. It looks like the core of the tree has rotted and water collected in the cavity.

  8. In #1, once when cutting 6-12 inch diameter cottonwood trees for a Sundance arbor, they were in a low point in a pasture and were standing in 1-2 inches of water....

    Water would shoot up 4-6 inches out of the very core of the tree for a minute or two right after cutting them quickly with a chain saw..

    I guess the hydraulic pressure of water from the roots was that strong...

    Once the trucks were cut to length and as we carried them to the trailer, water continued to
    drain out of them.

    1. Very cool story... the osmotic pressure in tree roots can reach amazing levels, over 20X atmospheric pressure. Shooting that high out of a cut stump must have been impressive.

  10. In the backyard of our first permanent home there four apple trees and a couple of pear trees. Dad and one my uncles, who a trained arborist, would prune and spray all of the trees every year, but they never produced good apples for eating. After having lived there for about 30 years and all of us children having a our own places to live, Dad decided that he was tired of raking the leaves and pruning and general maintenance that wasn't producing much, so my uncle came over one Saturday to cut the trees down. Every one of the apple trees was hollow and full of water.
