    Need a split pic on that but my initial guess is a fast-growing White Ash....yard tree?

    yeah but they're Chevy orange:)

    That stuff(bark anyways) looks like some odd oak I have around here - I'd have to go find some leaves to nail it down, but it doesn't look like oak on the end grain

    He's a stud, though. He stacks in flip-flops; Can you imagine the pain he has to overcome when he drops a big round on his foot, or misses with the maul?

    Local dump tree. Going to split once the heat breaks.

    First thing I did was check for rays. Also, I think you might be colorblind.

    Wasn't stacking, was out in the garden and thought I would snap a pick of the stuff I brought home the other night.

    Yeah, I had a broken foot, she thought she broke hers a couple weeks later. Flip flops weren't involved with either of those.

    Being from a tree dump could be any odd ball cultivar - actually thought dogwood but its usually got a pink hue to the wood - might have been the Chevy red toenails throwing the digital camera off:)

    Doesn't seem pink.

    That's basswood right? Does that have a ton of water weight to it?

    You always seem to turn out to be right, Scotty. Isn't it good, Norwegian wood? BTU 26.4

    Oh crap, didn't realize that leaf was in the picture. I have the wood parked under the silver maple we are taking down this fall, must be on of its leaves .

    Norway is a lot like sugar maple as far as burn characteristics.....not quite as high of BTU's, but still up there better than silver or red maple....

    Good firewood, nonetheless. I take it whenever I can get it.....

    Never burned any but I've got a small one to take out at my SIL's new house. Another new wood to try! ::-)

    I love that stuff, woody. I usually get a couple every year (they are a weed tree 'round here, they grow virtually everywhere, in the ditches, along foundations, etc.....)

    Is that small leaf in the third picture attached to the wood? That leaf isn't Norway Maple, it looks more like Silver Maple. However, I think the bark looks like Norway Maple so I'll ignore the leaf, and assume the leaf is from another tree and is just resting there.

    Yeah, like I said earlier I didn't realize that a leaf from my silver maple had fallen onto one of the pieces.
