photinia dying-ok to use wood for trellis?
I have 6 huge photinia frasei that have a blight and need to be cut down now. Is the wood suitable to make a rustic garden trellis? If so can wood be used it immediately this fall? It will not be sanded etc....used as is. Will the wood hold up in Seattle weather? Also the 6 trees were used as privacy screen. Could they be cut about 9'up, leave the trunks and attach the branch lattice work to them?
