    Default osage orange


    we added more trees to shabona lake. the park delivered us 20ft osage orange branches. still had the green fruits on them. are they desirable to use? does the smell of the leaves deter crappies ? we always preferred hard wood of oak, ,maple but will take what we get

    If I am not mistaken I believe Osage Orange is supposed to last a long time. I do remember reading some about it here

    Osage is super long lasting and incredibly strong. Bow makers use it for recurves and we use em for fence posts. Also burns incredibly hot so we get it for firewood. I don’t believe it would deter fish at all. The leaves will deteriorate and it should hold up nicely underwater.

    Osage orange is extrememely rot resistant. I created a ton of piles in my pond with it. All the little spindly branches dont drop off so it stays pretty bushy.

    Submerged in semi- fertile waters Osage orange ( hedge apple ) will last approximately 25- 35 years underwater. In infertile waters such as gravel pits this can increase significantly longer. Given the choice it’s my favorite to sink
