Big seed pods

I’ve collected some of these to make some more seedlings to plant.
These are some of the biggest rainforest seed pods in our area.
These 2 trees grow beside each other on the side of our road about 1.5Kms from our place.

My you have big pods.

Very nice. I’ll have some of the timber when the trees are full grown, thanks. Love silver ash.

Love silver ash.

I have a 2x4 about 8’ long in the shed somewhere if you’d like to come & get it.

I’d love to, Cliff, but you should hang onto it to make pens.

Fuck’n big pen…

It was actually bought as Silver Quandong to make canoe paddles & I found out it was Silver Ash when we started to use it, it is heavier than Silver Quandong.
We made one paddle from it, it feels more like a weapon than a paddle. :blush:

That top left hand seed pod outer of Silky Oak looks remarkably like the south end of a northbound Boar pig.
