Thought I would check on here. Looking for some 24" or larger diameter, 4" minimum thickness tree trunk rounds. If you have a stump or tree you are removing and can cut a few of these for me, I will gladly pick them and pay a fair price. I can pick up within 2 hours of New Port Richey.

There’s a huge tree cutting service on the west side of 19 at the intersection of Ulmerton. They have them cheap as shit, along with more fire wood than an Eskimo in Alaska could use in a life time.

You need to do the cookie cutting yourself, otherwise not too many folks will do that for you. And you probably want to exclude palms in your request.

Looking for sections - basically whole rounds cut from the largest diameter of the trunk, about 4-6 inches thick. These will be used for axe and knife throwing targets.

Unfortunately I don't have a chainsaw.

Thank you! Either or both will do. I don't know which might work better for sticking throwing axes and knives in, but am willing to give them both a try.

You can email me at ericfield@hotmail.com - looks like we are close to each other distance-wise

Thanks again, Tom. Nice meeting you and the family and finally getting to see a rare F-26 in person!

Go with the Pine, not Oak.

Years ago my cousin was in charge of getting some rounds for this very purpose to use at a big scout camp we were having. He went to the mill and the guy cut him a bunch of Walnut rounds. They were so damn hard none of the boys could get a hatchet to stick.

I'm thinking Oak might not be much better. Its not as hard as Walnut but definitely hard. Pine is much softer and will work for sure though it might not last as long.
