    Trimmed some walnut trees this week. Didn't amount to too much but I kept bucked and stacked some of the smaller limbs. One of the nieghbor's trees was hitting the fence so I trimmed it back too.

    Hickory?

    I never knew Hackberry was so prevalent. I've got a bunch and apparently so does everybody else.

    I didn't either until we moved into to our new place and started going to Sugarcreek Metropark to run. I bet close to 1/3 of what I have is hackberry and Sugarcreek is packed too.

    Hackberry the other white meat...:p ... Not prime stuff, but definetly it is worth getting. Dries fairly quickly (Cherry, ash, etc.) and fairly decent heat output.

    Yeah, it looked like it was about the same BTU as some of the Ash varieties.

    I've always treated it like cherry. Missing the aroma of cherry but burns about the same.

    A good bit here, too (we're not far apart.) Now that I can ID it, I'm noticing it out there, along with a lot of Mulberry. But not a lot of big ones in the woods, where they have to fight for light.
