What pine is this?
« on: August 01, 2021, 03:07:45 PM »
Cut this pine two years ago. Noticed it had no sap so saved it. I'm milling it now, cuts easy, light... Wandering what it is and how well it'll handle the outside elements. Is this like cedar? Smells like pine but not strong...
Oh, and the tree was living when dropped.

Red pine usually has a star pattern of heartwood when looked at from the cutoff end of the log rather than a round circle of red heartwood.

I consider red pine to be very fragrant, pinus resinosa.

That would explain why, being an old log, it is so clean.

Red pine.  If dropped in winter months, sap down.  Most popular pine in the Northeast.

Sap doesn't go down  ;) On a sunny winter day a tree with needles is photosynthesizing, ones with green under the bark are making food through that chlorophyll.

In Wyoming we would consider that a spruce, not a pine.  Spruce have the shaggy bark...

I'm going to stick me neck out here and say based on the look of the bark and the fungus growing on the end and no sap that it  looks like the hemlock I have around here.  What did the needles look like?

If you lift a piece of that scaly bark up, and it is purple-red under there, then it's hemlock. Looking at the knot pattern, no to pine.

Actually looks more like Jack Pine, bark pattern is right and so is the grain ,haven't got a clue what the latin name is. That's just my uneducated guess.
