    Does butternut also have those chambers? I have a thread here looking to identify something in the walnut family that I was pretty sure was not black walnut (wrong bark). Not mentioned there is that the couple twigs I had did have the chambers. It dried pretty quick and pretty light, so I went with butternut. Whatever it was, it looked nothing like the wood in this thread.

    Edit: just googled, it does. But I also found a site that shows butternut wood with no color difference between heartwood and sapwood: http://www.dnr.state.oh.us/forestry/trees/butternut/tabid/5347/Default.aspx

    Well now, it's possible it was never pollinated, some English Walnut (Carpathian, for instance) need 2 trees to pollinate well, others are self pollinating. Any other of the same tree in the area?

    I'm stickin' with English (Carpathian) Walnut :)

    I'm no expert in american wood species but try your luck at

    There are quite a lot of tree experts hanging around, maybe someone can help you further.
    I guess it will be easier for you to identify the tree as you have seen the leaves, etc.
    let us know if it was of any help
