Im guessing Maple? It doesnt look like the other maple I have though.

I think I agree that it is Sugar Maple. The barks looks OK for Sugar maple, and the white wood does too. I have seen red streaking like that in the wood of Norway Maples, but I haven't cut many Sugar maples so I don't know if they can have it too.
I've seen red maple with bark like that.
You'll be glad that this doesn't look like your other maple, sugar maple coals a hell of alot better than Red Maple/Silver Maple.
Thats good news. im burning some silver maple now. I tried an over night burn with it a few nights ago and woke up to a box full of ash...i was so mad i had to bust out the matches and newspapers. for now on its mulberry at night, maple and cherry during the day.
Thanks everyone for their responses.
I'm tapping into Shagbark Hickory, Black Birch and White Oak on cold nights.
never had any sugar maple but looks similar to the box elder maybe because BE is in the maple family.
I have burned alot of silver maple and I just mix in some ash, elm, oak, whatever harder woods depending on the temp so it will last all night. The only time I go to 0 silver maple or BE in the mix is whens it's below 0 F but then again I consider over night 7 hours
The green tint is a disease maples get.
