The trees that are standing amid the down trees look like Black Locust. The large tee down in the foreground looks like Black Cherry, based mainly on the color of the bark. Those trees don't look like willow, aspen, cottonwood, or ailanthus, and the other options are all well worth your effort.
Wow, sorry I can't tell much from that picture, however ther are some fun toys in the forground. Some one is having fun! The one small round sort of looks like ash. It looks to be wet/rainy at the time of the picture which may darken the bark and make it harder to tell. Check the branches; very distinct opposite branching with a gray, V-furrowed bark on the trunk would be ash. Less distinct opposite branching would be one of the maples. Deep furrowed, rough broen bark could be black locust. Best I can do.
good enough, thanks fellas
I call it gravy................wood is already down and straight etc etc
Someone say gravy? Nom nom. *rubs belly*
Your gonna need a bigger dump truck and end loader to get all that wood home I'm thinkin.
Hey Butcher I miss your other avatar!
took the tree from the foreground. doesnt get much easier than this boys...
deep furrowed rough bark with a very regular pattern (kind of like expanded metal) would be BL..... and those God forsaken thorns...
Maple, not sure if its soft or hard from that last photo.
thats what i thought. how to tell if hard or soft? lots of BIG locust to back for too. i need a trailer in my life...
soft maple... just look at the spacing of the growth rings...
If it is growing in the open like that appears to be, I have seen quite a bit of Hard with growth rings that large. But I would lean more towards Soft maple.
it's hard to tell without seeing the whole tree.... and the leaves... I cut down a 14" Ash that was next to my house... I counted the rings and was shocked to find that is was only 17 years old... sure did burn nice though
Yep not ash bark either. Looks like maple. Hey, easy wood to get to. 2 years, It will burn great.
Looks like soft.
i think it looks like soft maple, but that is just my impression. i am not really sure why I say it is soft (Red) maple.
there are many kinds of soft maple besides red maple....
