    It is probably my eyes/screen and no bad intent to anyone who has been burnt out of thier home due to the Santa Ana Winds, but that looks like its been in a fire.
    hence firewood.

    Thanx for the replies so far

    It doesn't seem to smell like pine
    It fell from a combo of termites and the Santa Ana winds
    We're guessing Ash?
