Description: Truckload hackmatack knee sale- Harvested from the ground with a shovel, axe and leverage, then sawn, striped of bark and stored until dry. Hackmatack is the preferred species for knees because of its slow even growth making a wood that is tough and durable with the root often growing at right angles to the tree. Also known as tamarack, larch or Juniper, Hackmatack is prolific in the swamps and bogs of SW Nova Scotia.
June 16 2022 Update: With heavy hearts, Phin and I have concluded that we are overwhelmed by the continuing impediments that confront a successful effort and are resigned to join the numerous other efforts that have thrown their hands up. For this reason, the 2022 Maine Boatbuilders Show is officially cancelled.
