    I scored some rounds last week and am in the process of splitting them. Perfect day to split....low 30s, woods nice and frozen...splitting nicely. Anyway the lady I got the rounds from told me she thought it was mullberry but wasnt sure. I havent seen this type of wood before...but ive only split pine, sassafrass and silver maple so far.

    Both the bark & yellow wood look like the mulberry I have.

    Yes that is Mulberry. You'll be amazed as that Yellow color turns to reddish-brown as it seasons. And it takes awhile to season because it has a lot of water in it.
