One of our sawmill friends from Payson found this beast in harms way during wildfire season and saved a slice. We are hoping to go back and cut more slices off it as the tree was deadstanding and had to be felled for fire hazard but was too large to pull out of the forest whole.  The sawmill claims its Walnut, but it hard the coloring more like Mesquite, but the sawdust smells like Tootsie Rolls.
