Long time creeper, first time caller. First I''t tell you how much I''s fairly knowledgeable about wood burning helped get me started last year and now I'' to 2-1/2'' high. Long story short, we can''t loosened in the eight months it''d like to say as a newbie wood burner I can''ve
learned from this site just by reading through the questions and answers in this forum. A friend of mine who''m teaching him a few things since I discovered this place.

So, the aforementioned friend and I cut a tree down this March for his boss. It was a live tree that was crowding his driveway so he wanted it out, probably around 2'' in diameter and around 40''t figure out what specie of tree it was. The splits are really light-weight compared to say oak, maybe 1/3 lighter. Color is reddish tan with no visible sapwood. Rings are tight like oak would be and it has a slight aroma but hard to describe. It split real easy, not stringy at all, and the bark is 3/4" thick at the most and hasn''s been seasoning. Being a woodworker I know my oaks from my maples etc.and can identify many trees native to my area (northern Illinois) but this one has me stymied. Any ideas? Thanks guys.

Any chance it could be a specie of alder? This stuff was the same color from the heart to the bark.

The grain is beautiful, looks like Ash, looks like Mahogany actually. Do you have any upper limbs still? Or is it all gone? (Opposite branching)
Its nothing common that Im used to seeing for the East coast anyway.
Alder, dont know, maybe chestnut?
Sorry

Know it''s way lighter than ash but the rings are much tighter-1/32" to 1/16" on average. Plus ash is pretty white where this stuff is reddish tan. Bark is real thin too, thinner than ash. Saw some pics of bark via google from the common alder and looked pretty close to what I have so that''s Black Ash and I''s what it is, thats some good stuff!

Doesn''ve been processing. My initial thought was Cherry but doesn'' look like Cherry. If anything, the bark looks like Oak to me

Looks like a very dry elm. What is the moisture content?
15% is the lowest I''t believe how light the rounds were. I could take a 2''t even attempt if it were oak, locust, ash, etc.

Here''t look white enough and the bark is off. I want to say Slippery (Red) Elm, but that would be a big one. Dutch Elm disease usually gets them here before they get that big. I have one out there that just fell, the biggest I''m not sure that''s @nrford?
 
The split grain looks like White Ash, but it doesn''ve seen so far, about 19". Plus, Red Elm usually has at least thin sapwood, so I''s what you have. If it is Red Elm, BTU is about half way between American Elm and White Ash...I love burning that stuff, and the look of the wood. Where''s not giving off much for btu''t really expect it to being so light. Heard elm can be a bear to split but this stuff just popped apart with minimal pressure in the splitter and clean as a whistle. Absolutely no stringiness.

Whatever it is it''s and didn''s pretty heavy, not real easy to split and can be a little stringy (but not as hard to split and stringy as American.)
