ID this deadfall please?
« on: February 01, 2018, 06:32:05 PM »
 Can anyone ID this tree?  It was lying on the floor.  I managed to find one leaf....potentially ash? The bark sort of looks like basswood but the rings seem too close together for basswood.  I donít recognize the heart wood.  Location is the north shore of Lake Ontario

Bark does look bass, cut looks like ash tho, you sure can tell which when you you drop a saw in it!

By golly, I am pretty sure that is called firewood around here.

I know, I know, but I jest couldn't help it.

Yes firewood......Someone wants to cook with wood and they want specific types of hardwoods.

I guess everyone agrees :) Can you tell if it's black ash or white?

My first reaction was Ash.
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

I feel real certain it is basswood, those odd shaped brown hearts are a dead giveaway. Dry some and it will be light and it is soft and absorbs a splitting maul.
