    thanks. now i'm curious where he got it. i never see ash in my area, and my land pretty much has nothing but white oak, pin oak, black walnut, poplar (tulip) and pine.

    Well, I could be wrong I guess. I thought I was once, but I was mistaken!==c

    well, it makes sense that it's ash since i never see it and wouldn't recognize it. ash is supposed to be in my area, but i don't see it.

    I think so too. A better pic of the grain would help but even in that marginal pic, it sure looks like White Ash...
    Here, it's Oak, Hickory.....and Ash. ==c

    We've been cutting that stuff steady for over 10 years now because all of it is dead here. Good firewood.
