    Wood ID

    It felt like hard maple...but the bark is all wrong. Its smooth not ridged.....but dark and light almost spotted....not uniform like a beech or young silver maple.

    Wood ID

    I am usually pretty good at ID. This is new to me. I thought it was going to be pretty light when i saw it. Turns out it was heavy. Also it split well on the splitter, also had a slight "orange tint" on the splits. Its all CSS now but would love to know what you guys think?

    I agree. I couldn’t tell what it was at first. I rolled it over and saw the bark! I haven’t seen much up here either. Great score off the side of the road!

    Hickory!

    Oh yea, tip 'em get an end on the tailgate and levered them up. Shagbark! A lot of the plates/shags? were coming off and I left them where I got the wood. Kept some of the dirt out. I split it all today on new splitter!! Definite hickory brown inside and a bit stringy.
