Stump wood id.
« on: March 29, 2019, 05:20:16 PM »
Same guy that gave me the ash.
He picked up this slice from a wood dump here in MD.

My first guess is maple.
What do you think?


 

 

 



I scraped it with a knife. It had no odor.

Latewood pores arranged in wavy bands.  Characteristic of the elm family.  Hackberry is in the elm family.  I am also in the Hackberry Camp.

That last pic had me thinking American elm, but the bark wasn't working for me.

I would have called elm since that is the only species up here with wavy grain. So hackberry seems equally possible I guess. ;D
Move'n on.

Hackberry and sugarberry are considered two separate species, although the differences are so minor that it takes an expert to tell them apart, then on top of that, I suspect that they hybridize.  What distinguishes them apart is so minuscule that they are essential just variation within a single species in my opinion.
