I am currently building a home in rural Victoria. We have a number of large Blackwood trees on our land that need clearing due to fire risk.
I was wondering about the viability of send some of these a local sawmill to be turned into flooring for our home
Has anyone done this. Any advice would be welcome
Thanks you in advance
