    I have a few standing dead trees that I can cut down and am curious as to the tree type. I had thought that it may be Sycamore but am not sure. Also, there is a round core in the middle of each round (you can see it in the picture). If anyone give some insight on the wood type it would be greatly appreciated.

    That 5 nipple knot on it tells me it IS sycamore . IF it weren't for that it wood be unidentifiable or maybe PUNK WOOD!

    Sycamore has a really distinct ray pattern when it's split or quartersawn. If you split it you may see something that looks like this:

    (not my site, just found this using Google)

    Also- I agree with Lees- those spiky bits remind me of the sycamore I was burning last year.
