I am interested in expanding my wood collection as funds permit. I collect in the form of transverse slices, commonly known as “tree cookies”. I am interested in all woody tree and shrub species, even those not considered commercially valuable. I am looking for slices green or dry about 10-12” (~25 x 30 cm) in diameter, and/or whatever is representative of that species.
