I lost lost a very large , 35+ft pear tree in a storm, never smoked meats/ fish before, is it worth selling the tree to a true smoke lover?

I have used bradford pear for poultry and pork, specifically ribs. Does great. I've mixed in crab apple and oak too with it and it has a really nice flavor paired with other woods or it can just be used individually.
Nice idea to sell the tree to a true smoke lover!!! It will smoke forever until the smoke lover is passing away (unless he is 20 yrs only) and the sausage is getting dry.
My Q.: Can you convert it into sawdust??? Then I would be interested in a huge quantity.
It can be converted to chips rather easily. My neighbor is a tree / arborist guy. He ran a bunch of my wood through his chipper and made mountains of chips for me. I make my own sawdust by place a box under my table saw and start cutting chunks from my limbs. You would be surprised how much sawdust is produced in a short time.
I have a fruitless pear tree in my yard that will produce an endless supply of smoking wood for me. The flavor profile is charted as "close to apple".
I know that "ships" or boats are much different than sawdust. Have a nice day.
