    Sure looks like black walnut to me. Anyway a score close to home is the best kind.

    Odd you mention walnut, the same homeowner has 5 little (8-10" ABH) walnuts she asked me to take down. I'm going back next week to do so. Not much stovewood, but great PR around the neighborhood. We love love pignut hickory for stovewood in this part of the world, they're a trash tree that even squirrels won't eat the mast from, but boy do they burn good.
