    I've been driving past this tree since Sandy, it's what's was left after the rest of it was cleared from the road. It's kind of a busy road, so I had to park a few yards away(by the way the Subaru in the picture is mine not the pickup). I guess it to be 18" - 24" and 12' + long, can anyone tree1.jpg tree2.jpg tree3.jpg tree5.jpg tree6.jpg help with an ID

    Or ageing like a strong stout ,actually a good analogy ,generally needs 3 good years of proper care.

    Cheers

    I guess it will have to wait join 3/4 of a cord of red oak I almost done splitting. With that said I think I'll just stack the rounds to split later and stay on the prowl for wood I can burn in the next two winters.

    It's really amazing how true this is.
    I have been working through I large vein of cherry and maple in my shed, for over a month just scattered oak. Yesterday I got tired of it and brought in a load of oak. I had forgotten how much longer the oak burns. I was hardly suffering with the cherry/maple but the less frequent loading is nice.

    Yeah, seasoned oak beats out maple and cherry pretty good. I cannot wait for all my oak to be properly seasoned. Life will be good then.

    White oak, for sure. It will burn great in 3 years.

    I'll jump on the White oak bus. Get that Red Oak split ASAP. It won't really start drying until it is split.
