Hi, this is Joe with water in my logs from the “Where Does Water Come From” episode. I can add a sequel to my question but first I want say I was pleased that to hear that you got to make some jokes about my question and even made it on the SHOW TITLE !!!. So a few days after I asked the question I cut the logs on my saw mill and the top section had a large hollow area just a little in from the end and there was lots of rotten, punky wood in there that was sopping wet and draining out of the end. I do realize that the Anchorseal won’t eliminate checking but “hopefully ” minimize it, as for the math I did trim the ends of the log a little and then ended up with 2 logs that were over 8′ long . Feel free to make some more jokes about this and thanks for answering my question so promptly. P.S. I do email with an accent so I get played on the show .

I had a lagh listening to water comimg out of a log. Years ago I had large triple branched silver ,aple that i had to have cut down. I left part of stump exposed and built a flower bed around. I few years later i decided to remove the stump. Itwas about 4 feet in diameter. I dug arund it and deep enough that my neighbors laughed and asked about the foxhole i was in.
I got to the point where the roots werewhich exposed enough that I could use and Ax to chop them up so i could remove the stump. I made some cuts in the first root which was about 9 inches in diameter. As i cut 3/4 of the way through it I was shocled to see water come pouring out of the end of the cut root it was like a faucet was opened, I knew silver Maple really sought water but this tree was cut down a couple of years before and i had drilled holes in it and poured pil in them to kill the roots so they did not continue to reach out to my house foundation. I evntually realized my efforts were futile and had a tree company come in and remove the root. They had a good laugh at my foxhole. But I always remember that spout of water coming out of the root. Dontthink you can fool with Mother Nature she will win.
