    Customer of mine shares a storage yard with the tree service that is contracted by the local electric company to clear trees that interfere with power lines.
    He told them that I need wood and they are OK with me coming by and picking up whatever they have in the pile. The pictured logs I picked up last Tuesday.
    They get Pine, Birch, Maple, Apple and others. What would these be? I have also included photos of the beginning stages of my seasoning shed.

    Thanks, Jeff

    The smooth barked stuff looks like soft Maple, maybe Silver since that one round had that peel away bark. I also see the Spruce or Pine under that large round that I have no Idea what that is. Oh yeah, that white stuff is Birch.
