What kind of wood is this, from South Eastern USA
« on: September 05, 2018, 08:28:31 AM »
I was given these logs a few years ago, I was told they were used as an  ornamental tree up here, but that it was native to the South Eastern USA
I would like to sell them but do not know the name
The bark has an orange hue as it has dried. I was told it was a hardwood, but the grain seems more softwood



 

 know the name.

Looks like sassafras.  The smell/sneeze will let you know for sure.  Awesome wood for outdoor projects.  Light, strong and weather-resistant.
