    Don't know how old it is but the quality of hard maple will diminish to soft maple standards in a couple of years if left in log form and not cut and split and sheltered. That log may fair better because it is suspended above ground.

    +1. I've had decidedly poor results scrounging trees that look like this one. Typically around me I'll get 40% usable rounds, 60% rotten junk filled with ants, mice, etc etc. I've all but given up on trees that are not still standing until I become more desperate for wood....
