Honey Locust maybe.
Its stringy heavy wood.it splits like oak.it seems to take its time seasoning.
Yep ! Low Cuss.
does it burn good??? is it worth it??
yeah, very good, I burn alot of it.
Yep ! One of the top BTU woods. Good score.
Looks and sounds like Locust to me .... a winner!
Yep, locust. Take all you can get. Its good stuff.
it does burn nice and slow
The yellowish green would certainly indicate honey locust but what I have seen I wouldn't describe as stringy. In fact, I'm surprised at how straight it splits. But of course, I mostly burn elm so anything else would probably look straight to me!
Its just like pis oak.
It's a great wood to burn. It takes a little longer than some woods to season, but it's worth it. I don't like burning it while it's still wearing bark. The bark is thick and takes up space in the fire box. I could be wrong, but it also seems like the bark causes excessive ash. I burned a lot of it this season and I'll burn a lot more next. If you cut a dying honey locust down before the bugs ravage it from the inside out, it will last for years stacked, even uncovered.
Looks like Locust to me. Burns hot and long!
Exactly!! i was getting nervous that it would get punkie after i seasoned it.i have split some down and it burns nice.
What is the definition of punky?
Thank you smokin.i got the term punky from here.
It looks like locust. Honey Locust although has very nasty spikes all over it, cant miss them. So I would say black locust. Good s**t, I burn tons of it. Heavy to carry.
Its as heavy as oak.it sounds like oak if you drop a square piece on concrete.
If you look at the post a few down titled MMM Locust, that photo is honey locust. The black locust has the really thick bark like in your picture, although it is easily mistaken for mulberry, you will know if it turns purple it is mulberry. I think the only wood higher than Locust on the BTU chart is Osage. Even two years from now it will be heavier than oak, and hurt as much if you drop a split on your socked toes. All of the thick bark can be messy though
It has some thick bark.its like trying to season a bricklololol
I am pretty sure Honey Locust will loose most or all of it's spikes when it get's old. The black Locust around here doesn't have very thick bark compared to Honey Locust.
Locust,and its a great firewood
