WANTED: Syringa planks in bulk

I am interested in obtaining Syringa planks in bulk. Would you be able to supply planks in bulk or alternatively provide me with names of some suppliers? Syringa is great wood but alas supplies in Gauteng are scarce. Your help would be greatly appeciated.

Hi Graham,

I am interested to know what you might do with the planks? There are an abundance of syringas in Durban, in fact, they are a real nuisance! My brother and I have been trying to eradicate them from our parents’ garden.

But discussions on what to do with them, including making furniture etc. led to a dead end:

Won’t the wood warp?

Please by all means come and get them in Durban, roots and all, and you might get a conservation award too
