gasass just posted a thread "Ash?", thought that's what I had too but the consensus was hickory. Posting my pics too, if it's hickory, I'll be pumped. I think the seed pods give it away, they look the same as his. Tree came down on my parent's property, been sitting there for a few years, most of it's been off the ground. Seems to split easily with my fiskars, although this is the first thing I've split with it other than poplar.
