Brand spanking new to this stuff. I have two pictures, one is from a tree that was cut down 3 years ago in my neighbors yard. My son and I went out yesterday and started cutting it up into more manageable sizes. The second picture is a tree that I'm going to have taken down in about a year since it's dying and leaning over my shed. I live in an area that is known for Hemlock, Hickory (Ironically it's also the name of the street I live on), Maple, and Oaks. I'm very new to cutting and burning so getting an ID will help me. Next I have to figure out how to split these things with an axe....I'm a hefty guy and I came down on it REALLY hard and barely dented it.
