    Been trying to get ahead on wood supply thanks to the reading on this site. What species is this tree? Thanks. IMG_20130401_110756_437.jpg IMG_20130401_110821_484.jpg

    Red Oak without a doubt. I was thinking specifically Pin Oak

    I would guess red oak also, but without knowing where you live and are scrounging its difficult to be sure. You could be from Australia!

    Looks like Oak,
    Seems to have been dead for a while.
    Standing dead of on the ground?
    Should start to dry after split & stacked ;)

    Sun shadows ; Soil & grass looks like North East US,, ;lol

    Thanks. I'm in southeast Iowa, the tree has been laying on the ground for a couple years out in the cow pasture. I got it cut up and about half split.

    Red oak for sure. Lying on the ground for a few years might give you a jump on drying it.
    Its a heavy moist wood. I love it though. Great find.

    In the second pic, I've seen those alternating light and dark saw marks on some wood that was pretty dry. I don't know if that means anything though. Hard to believe that Red is very dry at all...
