Mulberry? ( Cherry ) Honey locust?

Does it smell like cherry?
I haven't sniffed any yet.
While you are at it, taste it. Taste like cherry? (take on old Cheech and Chong joke.)
Might smoke some saw chips.
Burr Oak typically will have more rounded lobes. Maybe a northern Red?
The first one does look like cherry. The second could be honeylocust, but the pics are blurry and I don't have much experience with it anyhow.
Apologies for the blurry pics. I will try and snap some clearer photos shortly. The rest of the mulberry/cherry bark looks much different than the original pic.
It may or may not be cherry, but it's definitely not mulberry.
The assumed mulberry is in fact cherry. Will be saving some for the smoker. Any other opinions on the oak?
Not Bur oak, but if you are from Texas, I would suggest Buckly Oak. aka Texas Red Oak.
(Quercus Buckleyi) Texas red oak, this seems to be the most accurate leaf comparison I have found thus far. My hats off to ya jackatc1.
Hmmm...I nailed cherry, I point at red oak - yet no love.
My gears started turning after you mentioned northern red. My first thought was I'm in Texas so perhaps a southern red. My hats off to you aswell kind Sir.
I was just pulling your leg. Glad ya got it figured out.
Here you go Jags. I found this in my Carhartt jacket left for the summer.
has any body heard of the program leaf snap?leafsnap.com it works every time I even used it in belize try it
Just downloaded this. Thanks for sharing that!
good I used try and fool it never worked like mix up 2 kinds of leaves or grass always got them separate good luck I sell fire wood and it makes a false id correct some times people believe in the wood they KNOW is oak really is not mark
The first tree seems like some sort of cherry. You are a long way from Pennsylvania so maybe your Black Cherries look different than the ones here. My guess on the first tree is Black Cherry. The second tree is Honey Locust. The third is oak, and I'll defer to the Texans to decide which kind of oak. Any type of oak is good firewood.
I'm thinking ( Hawthorne ) ? Had a thorny twig attached sorry for more cruddy cell pics.
I dont think Black Cherry's natural range includes Texas. But the bark looked like a domesticated fruit tree of some sort. Which would be better.
These last splits dont look like any of the others.
They all look like high BTU woods, though. A discerning selection.
