    There is a mother load of this stuff for the taking. At first I thought they were 2 different species from the different bark, but after splitting, I'm not so sure. So I need help once again.

    They both have strong smells when split. The bigger one was a lot heavier, not just cause its bigger...
    Thank you all...

    Red oak, my man......nice score. You say there's lots of it, so if you have lots of room, get lots of it processed.
    Trouble with oak is, as you probably have already learned, it takes a LONG time to season to it's optimum. Give it 2 to 3 years, it'll amaze you.
    Split it on the smaller side, and it may season a little faster......

    PNW Casades, where is that? Lol yes New Jersey has had a lot of wood for the taking these past 6 months or so, unfortunately, Sandy hit us hard, most will become mulch, but for us pyros.....we need to continue to seek out what is out there and get what we can, while we can....before it becomes mulch....

    When you see those highly visible medullary rays (radial lines out from the center of the end grain,) that usually means Oak of some type.
