    A friend at work has a neighbor that just had 7 giant (what I'm assuming are White Ash) trees taken down. We have a quick 63°F break between snow storms (though it's rainy and humid) so I thought I'd start working on the 2019-2020 stash.

    Here is one pickup bed full. Can anyone confirm this as Ash? Thanks!

    I couldn't get the giants by hand so I just cherry picked the best rounds to split that were an easy size to manage. Thanks for the reply!

    Large diamond patterned bark and bullet hole down the pith of each round is tell tale sign of ash. Great score. I am wishing I had more in the stacks.

    Nice score! I love Ash...so easy to work with, very few branches, burns great, and seasons fast. While I appreciate the abundance of standing dead/dying Ash around my parts, it’s really a bummer that they’re going to be gone in a few years. Awesome trees.

    The wood does look strange. I don't know hickory.

    It has that pinhole in the center for sure. Insanely straight grained like White Ash tends to have been in my limited experience. My favorite wood to split by a mile.

    It looks like ash that has been wet. Were the rounds cut and on the ground for a little while, or was the tree on the ground?
