Parents’ neighbor felled a couple trees and he doesn’t burn wood, so free for me. Got a bunch of maple rounds and what looks like some kind of fruit tree but I have no clue what kind. He said he thought it was wild cherry, but the bark doesn’t look right to me. Whatever it was, the woodpeckers loved it. Split a couple open (see pictures) and it looks similar to the crabapple I have in the yard, but I thought folks here might have a better idea.

Safest way is call it fruitwood. Could be apple, peach pear. If you want to try smoking, its usually good wood, otherwise its BTUs

late arrival,
+1 for apple (wood color and bark with sapsucker pecks).

I'm guessing apple or crabapple.

+1 for apple.

Looks just like the apple tree I cut and split last winter.
