I scrounged some wood on the side of the highway. Just wondering what it was thanks

Sorry I should have had my kids post it for me
Yep Black Locust
BL for sure
I'll add a 5th black locust.....just in case you needed some re-assurance!!
Willow. I'll be down tomorrow to take it off your hands.
Last time I drove through CT, all of 95 was covered up with bucked up trees post Sandy.
I know! I know!
Locust, likely Black.
Bubinga. Maybe pau lope.
Don't listen to em....it's willow. Message me the address and I'll help you get rid of it. I'm down there all the time for work
Just want to welcome you to the forum KBart.
Keep on getting good stuff like that and you'll be a happy camper. Only one bad thing about BL and that is the smell it can give when it is burning. Go outdoors on one of those days when the smoke is hanging low to the ground and you'll not doubt what you are burning. Surely gives great heat though.
I thought I would get a bunch of loads out of there but as I'm loading my truck two trucks pull up with trailers and clean up. At least I got two loads.
That stuff grows like weeds around the roads. Walnut too. Shouldn't be hard to find more if you keep your eyes open. May want to contact a couple tree service companies to see if they would drop at your door step. You may be surprised.
I'm in good shape I have 9 cords stacked and maybe 1.5 on ground to split but I'm always looking my wife thinks I'm nut but she loves the heat.
