I harvested some viburnums end of June. I just did some preliminary straightening a few nights ago. I really like how easily it Bent with a little heat.

Cool.Perhaps in  time you could let me know how they compare to dogwoods in weight/spine/and thickness.Using dogwoods as a measuring stick compared to others.I know hazel makes nice enough shafts but a bit lighter in density so they need to be thicker for the same spine as dogwood.I dare bet dogwoods are probably some of the most dense shoot shafts.I also dare bet ocean spray may compare to it though and your viburnum.
