I went to buy cedar for my super building, but the guy was out. He had some 2" planks of catalpa on his trailor, and began expounding on the qualities of it.----Rotless and termite proof, and gets harder with age.
Anyone had experience with it?
I did a search upon it, and found that it does not, as it is used primarily for boxes(YAY!) and furniture. It is also insect and termite resistant. The tree is also known as "catawba" and the "fish bait tree" due to the large green caterpillars that abound on the leaves. They are very very fine catfish bait.
