    I have to vote for pine also. Very good firewood after long seasoning. Great for just cool weather or starting a fire in colder weather.

    Based on the bark and look of the inner wood and your location . . . softwood of some sort.

    Looks like ponderosa pine to me. Let it season and you got some heat.We used to let it season for a summer (in Az.) and it was good to go.
