Where do I find a large Madrone tree branch?

I am designing a wall unit that will include cabinetry, a place for the television, and a place reserved for just the right branch. Ideally, I would find a sacred tree ready to be reclaimed for just such a use, but I live in Maryland where I don't think Madrone trees live.

I'm looking for a large branch that is about 75-80" tall, and that has smaller branches that curve to the right. I can clearly "see" what I want, but have no idea how to go about finding this. Suggestions?

Spectacular branch
by: Irish Eyes

I used a similar Manzanita branch in my Octagonal canary ariary my husband John made for me and it was absolutely fantastic; the canaries loved it and so did all of my friends and customers. I started my granddaughter's college fund with that adventure. I would gladly send you whatever we had but as the Monk said it would be expensive. I live in California. My husband sent her sister a box of chocolates and it cost $12 to send it. I appreciate your delima as mine is the opposite. I have lots to offer but no way to get it to the many wonderful people who love this magnificent wood, both Madrone and Manzanita.

The shipping would not be easy... not sure what postal or UPS limits are.

Good luck!
