    I got about 8 cords of this wood given to me 4 years ago. It had been felled and stacked in 8ft lengths by a crew a year prior. The landowner gave it to me after giving the logging crew the boot for breaking their contract on what trees they were going to take. Anyway, this stuff has not been taken care of as it has sat in the weather in 8 ft lengths until august when I bucked it and stacked it. It goes fast in my OWB as I only have about 2 cords left ~ been burning since Oct 1 ~ and more than 50% is rotted. I was just curious as to what type of wood it is as I can't tell...
