    i will try to take a picture or two of a tree I cut that has been down for some time. It is VERY yellow in the middle and especially noticable after it is split. Now I know this tree has been down for at least a year and it is VERY heavy. Do you know what wood this may be? Thank you.

    Osage Orange will be yellowish when first split then turn dark orange as it ages,it is one of our denser (heavier)domestic hardwoods ,does the branches have thorns and does it have a green fruit the size of an orange.

    Osage is the densest N American wood, and it is yellow in the middle. It can be anywhere from very yellow to orange with red streaks. It will turn brown with age/exposure. Locust is a very pale color compared to osage (also called hedge, hedge apple, boi d' arc, bodark, and a few other things).

    Well here are a couple pictures. It does look a lot like the Mulberry that you had a link for, but man, I never knew that Mulberry trees got this big. Let me know if you have any more thoughts based on these pictures. Thanks again.

    Honey Locust has large thorns, Black Locust maybe but it looks like mulberry to me.

    A honey locust will loose most of it's lower thorns as it gets older.
    Bark looks too furrowed to me for mulberry. It's possible that it is though. Especially with that funcky looking crotch. Mulberries grow that way. So do Osage, but that's definitely not Osage.
