Description:
Sherwood Valley  - A peeler says: Wild Nutmeg wood very tough. When swamping I've cut a sapling half in two, split it up and wrapped the torn part around a tree. It's that tough. The fresh wood smells like cologne, very agreeable. Pepperwood is also a good tough wood.  - White-barked Tan Oak trees are thin barked says a peeler. They most frequently are. - Peeling lasts longer on north hillside where it is cool. The men are, therefore put on the ridges and south slopes first. ::::::::: July 31, 1907.  Tan Oak Measurements. - Tree No. 20. Height = 66 feet. Diam butt. = 1.6 at 3 ft. Peeled 42 feet. Bark on butt = 1 1/2 in thick.  " [bark] end rim = 3/4 in.  " [thick]  Trunk diam. end rim = 1 ft!
