Title: Cricket, Anyone?

Author: Zasada, John;

Date: 2001

Source: Minnesota Better Forest. Vol. 6 no. 1.:p. 8-9. (2001)

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The focus for this issue is an interesting group of plants-- the "willows". Although willows have many uses, the one that brings them their "highest level of sophistica- tion" is as the raw material for cricket bats. Somebody, somewhere must make cricket bats from something other than wiliow (to the cricket aficionado this is likely akin to making a baseball bat from something other than wood from the ash tree--for ball players of my generation anyway!). But the traditional wood, used for more than a century, was and is from willows.

Keywords: willows, cricket bat, Minnesota
