Here is a large staff out of a gray birch sapling, root ball and all. It stands just shy of 72" tall and the shaft ranges from 1-1/4" to 1-3/4" in diameter. The roots are occupy a volume of about 7" by 8" by 4" high. It was harvested on 4/4/21 and at that time it weighed 3# 5 ozs. Birch typically will lose more water weight than maple. Customize it as you wish or use it as is.(ufws30)
