    I was able to scratch the end of the round with my finger nail fairly easy. The bark is kind of redish also. What do you think folks?

    Thanks,

    I second the silver maple. The sixth picture sold me. I have been burning nothing but silver maple this fall. It burns nice and clean and even pretty hot. It just does not leave a good bed of coals nor last all that long. It was totally seasoned in under six months which is nice.

    Bruce,does it smell like pine? Silver Maple is pretty 'bland' not a strong smell like Oaks,Black Cherry,Black Walnut,Black Cherry,Hickories etc.

    No it is not pine. I am surrounded 360 by 100ft standing pine Q-tips. Pine needles every where. It's just stuff from the ground.
