Included is a photo of a sapling I just cut. It is a burr oak I have been watching for a couple of years. It sure put on a growth spurt this spring. At the smallest it's about 1 3/4" and the big end is near 3" bark included. When I dug it up, I expected a root knob with a couple of side roots. Instead it has one big tap root that tapers out from the trunk. Those little twigs you see at the upper end are all the side roots it had. So, when it is dried, what would you folks do with this? How would you shape it?.
