    I just picked up a load of this off the street, I think it's red oak but I'm not 100% sure. Thanks... image.jpg image.jpg

    Yes, the wood looks a lot like mulberry but the bark doesnt. But it definitely isn't red oak either. Got me stumped. >>

    Might be honey locust, was it hard and heavy with a honey like medicinal smell?

    Can't say what it is, but it's not oak. Big rays would be obvious if it were.

    Looks like honey locust, maybe the "engineered" thornless type used for landscaping. Did it have giant man eating spikey thorns growing from the trunk?

    It was a limb, that was sitting on ground for 6 months, then someone cleaned it up, put it near the curb and I picked it up. I'd did smell really bad in the middle, it was quite difficult to split, the fiskars bounced off and the 8 # maul took a few swings to split it. No idea if truck had spikes. Also that size piece is quite heavy. Thanks for all your help.....keep posting if possible

    The Honeylocust we have around here is yellow inside, not that golden-brown color but the bark looks like it could be Honeylocust? Wow, tough one.....what kind of aroma does it have?

    I could believe honey locust, but It looks an awful lot like hickory to me.

    I'm going to say hickory too. Looks like the hickory I have split. Is there a purple haze on any if it?

    Some of those needles are over 6" long and sharp as a tack.

    The Pignut I had, had pretty smotth bark? Here is a pic of one split (inside looks right).

    But the next pic, notice the 11 rounds (3 are Ash) the 8 smooth ones are the Pignut?
