Default Mulberry and spruce

I have some small, about 4", mulberry trees in my fence row I need to remove. I hear it is related to Osage orange. I might try to green carve some spoons. I also have a blue spruce. Am I crazy. Should I just burn them?

Well, you can burn some, but surely try to work some into the carving arena. Spruce makes excellent walking sticks......strong, light and straight with symetrically placed branch knots. don't know a thing about mulberry, but what the hey, it's free, so give it a go!

my thought is if the carving don't go well I can always burn it later.
