What species wood is this
« on: December 31, 2021, 10:32:00 PM »
Tjis tree is from sand mountain in north east alabama.  
I am trying to figure out what the species is.
This log has been cut and laying for about 8 months. I love the spalting, and bluish color, but am puzzled about the species

Anyone know what it might be?
