    Looks like White Oak to me. Not positive though. Hickory doesn't have that kind of bark I'm pretty sure.

    I would say that you have a very nice piece of white oak. Per the fuel wood standards guide that I have in front of me here is some additional info: (Heating ability) Very High, (Ease of Splitting) Moderate, (Ease of Starting) Difficult & (Coaling Qualities) Excellent. That is a very good wood for selling for firewood.

    I'd say...I'll take a cord of that or two for my woodstove. ;) Heck...I'll take 6-7 cords for next years wood supply.

    Hard to split white oak. Especially when it is green.

    Good luck

    You must be right. The wood takes a little while to ignite. But, when it does start- wow- you can't even get your hand close to the fireplace , even with the poker!

    Also, where can I get a copy of that fuel guide?
