I.D on a few logs (beginner!)
« on: March 17, 2017, 08:14:36 PM »
Hey guys, I think I have two different species here. It's been sitting outside for a year. The logs are all I have to go on. They were cut in the suburbs of North Atlanta, ga. I was thinking maple, tulip poplar or maybe white oak? Theres a lot of pink coloration that's formed since I cut them on the logs that are spalting. Anyways, any input is much appreciated thanks guys (bottom one?)

Looks like one of the red oak family to me.
You may think that you can or may think you can't; either way, you are right.

I just milled a few of them and southern red oak seems to compare the best. Thanks for the help.
