The trees

The trees
All types of wood have distinguished qualities which people have known of and utilized for a long time. A forrest in ecological balance - that is to say a forrest with a variety of tree species in varying ages - is a rich store for a craftsman.

If making, say, a rake, you can take advantage of the properties of different species of trees. A spruce handle is a good idea for a light-weight tool that doesn't tire out its user. The head of the rake is normally made out of a hard, durable material, like birch or ash – and for the tines, you need a smooth and hard sort of wood, like lilac or hawthorn.
