pretty hard to tell from that picture . could be any kind of hard wood . kinda looks like oak or hickory
Looks like White Oak to me. Not positive though. Hickory doesn't have that kind of bark I'm pretty sure.
white oak,bust pretty easy.chesnut oak is the one thats a bear to split.
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.
No wood is hard to split with a 30 ton log spliter!
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?
Here is a good guide for BTU output of wood
