  • Prunus domestica - PLUM
    These fruitwoods are valued in smaller, earlier woodwind and strings. Do we know whether Czar and Victoria and other fine fruiting varieties produce similar timbers? One fear is that they are equally apt to produce shrinking timbers as dwarfing commercial stock takes precendent.
