    Wood Identification

    The sign says it's Oak, but not quite convinced...

    It looks to me like it's "in the way"! ;-)

    I gotta go with what Spencer said. But, I'd be there in a heartbeat if possible with the truck, trailer, loader, and saws. Well, that is if the owner said come get it.

    I was really stumped at first but I'll go out on a limb and say it's oak.
    I'm leafing now.

    Once there was an oak
    standing up so tall
    until upon the road
    the might oak did fall.

    It lay there in its glory
    its limbs lie all askew
    and there upon the forums
    all asked "what shall we do"

    If tis an oak I'll take it
    an oak and nothing less
    unless perchance its free
    then I'll stash it with the rest.

    I'm not sure either the bark looks perhaps a bit shaggy for oak, but its hard to tell from here...

    It may say 'Oak', But I'm thinking 'Fire'. Maybe some parts are 'blanks'

    Not oak. Definately of the species Ded Wood.
