    I'm thinking Pine or Hemlock. I'm not good at I.D'ing softwoods, but I think that's what you have there.

    Definately a pine.....I'm thinking white pine.
    I'd be running that thing into boards for my woodshed project! ==c

    I got tired of laying down to look at the picture. It's not a white pine Scott.

    Heath - the pictures took me awhile too at first!

    I would have said white pine, like Scott, but since Dennis vetoed that I'll stick with some other kind of pine.

    I'd say White Pine. Especially with all that pine pitch on it! Sorry Savage!

    If it is pine there should be some pine needles, unless it was standing dead. I can't tell what it is from the picture.

    Look closely at the butt end of that log. Resin oozing out of the sapwood. Without a doubt that is white pine. I got a pile of logs at the mill ready to cut that are the exact same thing........

    No need to be sorry, it just doesn't look like white pine to me. But I've said before, I'm terrible trying to ID with pictures. I'll bow to your judgement.

    Looks like white pine to me, especially the rounds under the log with the yellow heartwood.

    I split up one a few weeks ago that was slightly pink tinted. I meant to take pics before the sun faded it.

    I've read this whole thread, and I've come to the professional conclusion, based on pin point analysis of the photo, along with discerning study of each and every post thus far, it is, undeniably, and indisputably,

    PINE :p

    What do you get if you cross an Elephant with a Rhino? Elifino!

    I am just saying if it was out here, that is what it would be for sure, A Doug Fir tell tale is that red interior.

    It's not white pine.
    Looks more like what they call shortleaf pine down here
