Osage Orange is the strongest, most dense hardwood in North America and is highly rot resistant. It is one of the most uniquely-colored species of wood native to North America. Its yellow to orange heartwood just glows when polished up nicely and is one of Teraprom's favorite types of wood.Osage Orange is an invasive species in Illinois, so your purchase is benefiting the local environment of west-central Illinois by making much needed space and sunlight available for native species to thrive.
Some checking (cracking) on the ends may develop or already be evident. This is a natural part of the drying process and does not weaken the stick. Below are the specifics of this item.

- Lateral drying cracks are normal in Osage Orange and occur naturally as the wood dries--they do not weaken the piece

Our wood products are always sustainably harvested from woodlands we own in Illinois. We take great pride in what we do and we care for our land. Removal of invasive species benefits the environment from limiting their spread and opening up land for native species to grow. Native species are typically cut as part of thinning operations to improve the quality of our woodlots.
