    Boxelder.Soft & very heavy when green,dries fast & is very light when dry.Good for spring/fall burning,starting a new fire etc. Woodturners,carvers & artists really covet that stuff with that much color.

    It looks like the neighbor needs to sharpen his chain! He really worked at it, I'll give him that!
