Walnut ID
« on: May 25, 2019, 06:49:38 AM »
This walnut log rolled into my yard the other day. It's a beast, but a bit odd. The bark is not familiar and it has incredible amount of sap.
Looks like excellent dark color in the heartwood though. 

Was a city yard tree, which may explain the sap excess. Anyone confirm that it's an English walnut? other?
Calling @nativewolf 

Not sure if I want to slab it and let the sap, or go for the heartwood. 

Thx

Could be just a fast growing black walnut.  A leaf would settle the question once and for all.

Could be English. And this may sound stupid but smell it walnut has its own smell. But to me it looks like catabi bean.

   Here is a Catalpa I sawed last week and I swore it was walnut before we cut into it. I don't remember the dark pith but the bark and end sure looked like walnut. The wood was very soft, very light and had a distinct strong smell. Let us know what you find when you open it up.

Yes.  The leaf has the terminal leaflet.  In American black walnut, the terminal leaflet is aborted.
