What’s this then...
« on: July 17, 2018, 10:25:35 PM »
I didn’t get these, but wonder what I missed out on.  These were free on Facebook, but I was too late.  Probably further than I wanted to drive anyway.  Would have been fun to cut though.  What do you think?

I figured it was an oak I hadn’t dealt with before.

If it had come from my property it would be Water Oak which is a lower quality Red Oak than our Cherrybark Oak.  It is very susceptible to bacterial intrusion, kinda stinks, but makes good lumber.  It is my second choice for firewood.  Quercus nigra

My "natural range" map does not show that Water Oak grows in Missouri, so your specimen may be another variety of the Red Oak family.  Do you have leaves?

My first guess would have been hickory, but I'm usually wrong so pay no attention to my input.  :D

If it stinks realy bad kinda like old cow poop it could be pin oak. Do you have any idea if it was a yard tree or was it forest grown ? My guess would be pin oak or northern red oak.

My guess is that it was in the yard shown, but that yard may have been carved out of a forest.  I’ve milled pin oak, but it was light colored and not dark like in the photo.

Oak.  I'd guess Pin Oak.  Popular in subdivisions because they grow fast.  I've heard it's good lumber as long as it doesn't have too much shake in it.  

My inlaws have a couple Pin Oaks in their front yard that were planted when the house was built in the mid 70's.  (Same with the whole neighborhood.  Lee's Summit, near KC.)  They are around 38-45" diameter now.  Father-in-law keeps going back and forth over keeping versus cutting them down, but will probably try to mill them if he does cut them.   ;)
Lucas 6-13+slabber, Mr. Sawmill bandmill, orange chainsaws, JD SSL, Case Backhoe, farm tractors, trailers, and 150ish acres of trees.  Fledgling woodshop with CNC router, laser engraver, Woodmaster 712, and a Berlin 108 moulder (project).  Oh, and a lovely (patient) wife and four offbearers.

Around here close it might be Quercus velutina [black oak] mainly  going by the dark and smelly wood and the red oak group appearance . Lumber characteristics very similar to the other B grade red oaks previously mentioned. It wouldn't be hard to sort out the true species if you had a twig and a fruit in hand but just from the photos it's only a guess. I wonder if the Forest Products lab could even tell by examining the wood alone in a laboratory setting?
