    First off, I'm sorry for no Pic and I know that may make this impossible but here goes.....Picked up a load of wood from the tree service place this morning. Average size rounds but a bark that I have just never seen....Thin and jet black with a tinge of rust color. Not like paper(birch) and not peeling (old silver maple) Lord I wish I had a photo... Oh ya...rounds are HEAVY! Never had this wood before...

    Could you be describing shagbark hickory? Except for the jet black. I would not describe hickory as jet black.

    Maybe because of its age, the bark turned black, Just a thought....
