I asked this question What are uses of red spruce (picea rubens) by humans in a wilderness, primitive, or frontier setting? and have more like it in mind. Before I post more questions like that, I want to ask: is this sort of question acceptable?
I think the answers are appropriate for StackExchange format: a definitive and objective answer, in relatively short form (like a list).
The questions like this could be somewhat endless, that's why I ask here on meta before 'opening the flood gates' so to speak. I have specific flora in mind that came up from experience though, so I think these could be useful flood gates to open.
For example, the next question I have is like the above one but about small diameter (1-6" DBH) American beech. I find many of these in the forest, sprouting from root suckers due to beech bark disease, and given it is such a hard wood I wonder if there are already uses of it (or reasons not to use it) that the TGO.SE community can make me aware of.
