    ...... Here in Aus we have a bunch of trees that don't have a straight grain in them and that means their bloody dangerous to even stand under let alone drop ......
    And they keep me on my toes I can tell you ...... because even if you scarf them right and back them in the right place it don't mean chiiit these buggers will find a way to *f-word you in the end ...... and Many loggers have died even when these trees were green ......
    Anyway I will find some pics and endever to find more better pics to show you soon ......
    Anyway this is typical of what I am saying ......

    I imagine that stuff probably does not split very easily either. Now and then we run into twisted grain on species that are normally straight grain and easy split. Usually that occurs when a tree grows at an odd ball angle and stress causes the grain to twist. I've run into twisted grains on both ash and elm.

    That wood in your pic looks treacherous.
