the massive beech tree lining the Moerkantsebaan in Essen had been pointed out back in 1980 by Ivan Weyns who had a veneer factory. 'if they ever cut it down , let me know. This tree will produce interesting veneer!' 'But its full of shrapnel' I replied. 'No, I can't use it then because I cannot afford to damage my cutters, they cost too much'. Come 2014 and the tree had to make way for a new cyclist path. Fortunately the city council and the contractor were obliging and it 13 slabs were recovered.
