    Thanks. Will borrow buddy's trailer, and assuming someone doesn't grab before Sunday, make a couple trips. Haven't had ash in a while.

    Honey Locust and/or Ash. Either is great. Cut and waiting for you to drive up and load is better. Don't wait.

    Awesome scrounge. I would contact the guy and let him know your coming and ask what his favorite beer is.

    Picked up the wood today. By no means do I consider myself an expert on species, but I know for sure it was NOT locust and I am not certain if it is ash. Almost positive it is poplar. I say this because it was not too heavy and I had poplar before. One of the pics includes a split piece. I am not complaining because it is free but I was a little disappointed. What do you think?

    I'm not sure. It is light as poplar, but doesn't have the yellowish/purple markings of the poplar I had. Maybe ash? Is ash typically on the lighter side? I am not an overly big or strong guy and the larger rounds were not too difficult to lift. Could be the last loads of wood I got were locust and that was heavy!
