    My future son-in-law dropped off wood from his yard today. Asked what it is and he doesn't know. Either do I. Any help. Very yellow.

    Thanks, Jeff

    My guess is mulberry, and if I am correct you hit the jack pot. Great wood to burn.

    too hard to tell from the bark but the wood looks to be yellow and any mulberry I have cut was yellow. If it is mulberry then I concur with adrpga498. It's right up there or a little better than white oak.

    Mulberry. The charts put it closer to red oak than white, but still good. That yellow will be brown from the air in a little bit.
