    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but I'm for a source for ironwood branches. I need small diameter pieces, 1/4 to 1 inch round, and they need not be longer than a few inches. If anyone has any they can part with, or knows of someone who might, I would love to talk to you.

    Thanks in advance,

    Do you mean desert ironwood or the ironwood tree?

    You might want to contact someone like Mark at Burl Source. He may be able to get you in touch with someone who harvests desert ironwood.
    Another idea would be to contact someone in the landscaping business in Arizona, Baja California, or the Senora desert which is the part of the country that has the bushes/trees.
