Hi,

I'm in Japan working at a kindergarten, and they are about to do some renovations. It is unfortunate, but there are a few trees that are coming down. One of them is a cherry tree that was planted 50 years ago. I would like to use the wood to make wooden blocks for the children, so that they have new toys, and so that the tree does not have to really leave the kindergarten. My question: Is there a time limit from cutting the tree down to being able to process it? Does it need time to dry out?

My Japanese is not that conversational, so I have come to this forum. I appreciate your help.

James
