    I stacked the wood I cut and split thed other day and noticed I had something other than oak and maple in that scrounge. Some of the smaller peices I split were light so I assumed they were a little more seasoned. I would assume since its light when seasoned its not a high btu wood. Almost looks like cherry but its definately different from the other cherry I have.

    I agree with the soft maple crowd!

    I thought the wood looked like maple but the bark threw me off, Im used to seeing the maple with the deeper furrowed bark like ash.

    Definitely soft maple. We have lots here. The smooth bark you'll find on the younger trees.

    x2! I usually see it in younger trees or limb wood on bigger trees.

    The one with the smooth bark is from a limb. I got most of the tree in a scrounge so I got quite a bit. I put it in the softer woods pile that season quicker, I stack oak separate.
