    Went a for a walk on the back nine looking for wind blown trees. Found quite a few, cut about 2 cord in the past 2 weekends.
    All the leaves were gone, and I'm going to try and keep better tabs on next years wood. I think I have them pegged as
    (in order of pictures) Ash, Oak and Maple. What think ye? PS...do not base anything on the ground leaves....splits were moved.

    That's what they look like to me. Might be Silver Maple on the bottom. Looks like you have a log for every season.

    Definately ash and maple ! The second does not look like oak to me,is the wood heavy. Split one open. Almost looks like poplar ?
