Tree services are one of the best sources for mill logs except for occasional hardware. The tree guys chip the smaller stuff, but the large softwoods are a problem big mills don't want yard trees and they end up paying to dump them. I cut for a couple of tree guys, they drop off the logs and I cut for both of us no one really keeps score. Frank C.

What kind of wood is that?  If I saw those up here I'd think tamarack.

we've got one here too, brings in a little work from time to time,  much like bandmiller2, there's always some trading around,  and am wondering what is slash pine?
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

I know it's not common to the area, but the bark looks a lot like Ponderosa Pine!

Slash Pine is one of the SYP's.  To me, kinda between Loblolly and Longleaf.

Southern yellow pine
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Longleaf pine forest, one of the varieties of Southern yellow pine
Southern yellow pine (often abbreviated SYP) doesn't refer to any one species of tree, but rather a group of three-needle pine species which are classified as yellow pine (as opposed to white pine), and are native to the Southern United States. They grow very well in the acidic red clay soil found in most of the region. The species include Loblolly, longleaf, shortleaf, and slash pines. It typically has a density value between 5055 lbs/cubic foot when pressure treated.

Slash pine and longleaf pine were the ones that were tapped for turpentine.  Slash is native to the Atlantic and Gulf Coast Coastal Plain.  Denser than loblolly or shortleaf, but not as dense as longleaf.

Looks like my evaluation was correct, and it was learned in the shk. (school of hard knocks. (old saying)  Thanks WDH.

They look very similar.  Especially the orangish platy bark when they get old.
