True but the ridges on Ash bark almost always connect back together.  :P

Hey everyone. I apologize for not responding here in the forum. It honestly never occurred to me to do so since I was asking for opinions, but the reality is i'm in the wrong here and I can admit it. The only way for a forum to be successful is when you have a dialogue that goes both ways. In the future with my posts I will take more of an effort to respond to messages.

On to the post. Everyone had great ideas. I WISH it was black walnut as I would have snagged it up from him in a heart beat. Some people asked my location. I'm located in Wisconsin. The people that voted for Willow have my vote too. From everything I know about the location that he bought the wood from its heavy in Willow, Ash, Cottonwood, and Box Elder. I've been lucky enough to cut some large Ash trees in my life and I just can't agree that this would be Ash. The small trees coming out of the wood resemble Willow saplings to me personally.

I could be wrong in all of this and maybe he did get super large ash, but my gut just says no. Anyways, as far as what he is going to do with the wood it still up for debate. I don't think its work milling, but then again I have never dealt with Willow before. He has spoken with a different neighbor that seems to be interested for an outdoor cook stove. At least he will get some of his money back. I guess just let it be a lesson, which lesson is anybody's guess.

Willow is diffuse porous.  Ash is ring porous.  Not remotely similar.
