what type of tree is this?
« on: August 04, 2018, 09:26:53 PM »
I live in Northern Michigan, swampy area.

I was on the other end of my property cutting down some dead standing ash trees. One of them was hanging up on this tree, not sure if lightning struck it or what made it fall but it wouldn't have been easy to take down only the ash so I cut this one down and both fell down together.

Kindof looks like it has some similarities to birch but it's silvery .

Thanks for the help

Didn't know if it's good for firewood or I should mill it :)

It it an old tree,meaning 80-100 years old. We had some yellow and white birch here on my land, They sure do look diffeant sometimes when they get old. But others looked just fine.

And pictures must be in the FF gallery. Click onto the link below to learn how. It's easy and the picture will always be here. Not many red X's on here.
