    Looks like popular to me. Very light when dry, easy to split, burns quickly leaving no coals. I've burned lots of it, best used during shoulder season or as kindling, not a wood I would pay money for but ok for free.

    Wooddope you described exactly whats happening to me the stuff burns up fast 2-4 hours and theres nothing left. Im starting to think I have a good mix of poplar and sweet gum.

    I have just found that some "hardwoods" aren't so hard while some pines are quite hard around me, not sure of the species of pine but some I have gotten from my Sister's yard is very nice wood once seasoned. Although I am also not sure which species of hardwood I have found to be so light, but I have suspected it to be Sassafras or willow.
