Hope everything turns out OK. Sending thoughts and prayers your way.
Pretty sure he's thinking he got the better end of that deal. Do you know how rare Ash is becoming with all the stinking invasive bugs? Or what an absolute joy it is to work from a woodworker's perspective? I just hope you bucked it into lengths of 3' or more (preferably closer to 5-6'). Nothing pisses me off more than to see a beautiful 200+ year old white oak or maple felled in a storm or for construction and bucked into 2' lengths. WTF is anyone going to build with THAT? What an incredible waste.
Yes I know what it's worth, but since I don't really have the tools available to work with it, it would have been wasted in my possession. Was all in 8'-16' lengths. 4"-16" wide. Pretty good stuff.
