    I agree if that first picture is showing the bark then it is sycamore.

    without a doubt, sycamore.

    some of it can be hard to split by hand.

    burns better than my boxelder, but not as good as the hardwood stuff, ash, oak, hickory, cherry, etc.

    Sycamore on the left. I have a lot of it. Tough to split. Lights quick, burns hot but not long.

    The first pic is the bark side and the other pic is the inside of the split.

    Thanks for responding.
