    image.jpg image.jpg The picture isn't great but I scrounged quit a bit of this wood. The rounds haven't been split yet and they seem very heavy for their size. Some of the bark is falling off and it's like paper peeling off under it. More pics to follow after it's split.

    Could be ash, but this is one case where a blurry pic of the bark just isn't going to narrow it down enough. Clear images of the end grain at the very least, the split surfaces even better, will help a lot.

    I was thinking poplar too. I've been scrounging wood for many years. I never cared about what spicies it was , as long as it was dry. That all changed since I found this site. Now I have to I. D. Every piece that goes into my stacks. My wife thinks I'm nuts

    The peeling paper under the bark sounds like tulip poplar.

    Now it looks like punky norway maple. As worthless as poplar in its current state.

    I think, it's a poplar that wishes it was a maple...

    I think it is either Norway Maple or Ash, and it is punky (partially rotten). If it splits, I'd keep it. If it is too soft to split, don't bother keeping it.

    It split good. Didn't fall apart. I'll stack it separately from my good stuff in the shoulder wood stack.
