    That last post of yours is definately ash. Many say ash is worth its weight in gold. The first set of pics sure like like it could be Norway Maple. They have almost identical bark except when the ridges of the bark are 'rubbed' somewhat, ash will appear white and norway maple will appear more of a reddish. When I zoom in on the first set of pics they sure look redder than the ash does.

    Some does look red or brown in real life. It was a pile of mixed wood, little over a cord's worth, I'm just happy to get it.
    People say it's easy to split I must be doing something wrong.
    I This morning I buried a wedge in a 10" round. (it's still there)

    I'm on board with the second pic. Definately ash. The first one threw me because the lack of any darker heartwood.
