    I got a trailer load of this wood from a free craigslist ad, but i dont know what kind it is...i do know the bark is very smooth and the wood is stringy as heck!! After i split it on the splitter, i usually have to use my Fiskars hatchet to seperate the splits!

    Flaky bark and stringy splits... I'm thinking shagbark hickory, although some white oak looks like that as well.

    If its Hickory its not Shagbark or Shellbark. Scaly bark & wood color looks more White Oak.
