Late summer a large willow was put down. I asked if I could have a branch with few side branches for the bark, and the men were so kind to drop me a few pieces.
Maybe it was a bit late in the season for harvesting bark. Best is spring or early summer, but that is not the season for cutting trees. Birds might have a nest in it a.o.
I put the pieces of the branch in a rainbarrel for some days, to make it easier for the bark to come loose and it did. It will be enough bark for some small projects, and to satisfy my hunger to work with bark.
