Trick Question

I do not know how to determine that, but I'd be interested to know.

I don't know. We don't have it up here, just butternut. Any of those I have cut, whether young or old, have had pretty narrow sapwood. Plus the fresh cambium stinks of green butternut husks.

The sticker stain in the sapwood seems to go all the way thru.

I'm curious and would like to know what was used for stickers and if they were wet or dry when the stacking was done.

firefighter ontheside:
I tend to cut stickers out of everything.  I'm not sure what I had those stacked with, but most likely some white oak.  The stickers were probably fairly dry, maybe cut a few weeks before the walnut.  I"m sure there are better things to cut stickers from.  When I used dry pine stickers for walnut, the stain was pretty prominent in the sapwood as well.
