For the collective wisdom of the list (Ok, mostly Scott).
Is there a fundamental difference between working a true sapling versus
a fresh new growth branch from an old tree?
I need to split a 1-1/4" diameter green sapling down about 18" and then
loop the split end back on itself in a tight loop.
Think I will saw into the stick half way and split the waste away. May
still need to boil it to get as tight a loop as I want,
Thinking hickory but will gladly entertain suggestions.
