    I got a lot of wood from a tree service.They said it was Ash,so did 2 other tree cutter that I know.
    The wood smelled like red oak and looked like red oak , but leaves were not even any close to any Oak
    tree I have ever seen. Looked it up on a tree ID web site and it is Shingle Oak which is in the Red Oak family.

    It got its name because early settlers used it for shingles on their homes.

    Easy to split.

    Willow oak,Quercus phellos, also has similar leaves.
