    What is this wood? Black Cherry, Black Birch, or a hybrid???
    Bark is part Birch, part Cherry.
    Splits like Birch, smells like cherry inside. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Yep. Likely it's a young tree or one growing with a lot of vigor.

    I believe we don’t get Pin Oak & y’all don’t get water Oak.

    Water Oak- Quercus nigra

    https://plants.usda.gov/core/profile?symbol=QUNI

    Pin Oak- Quercus palustris Münchh

    https://plants.usda.gov/core/profile?symbol=QUPA2


    If you zoom in on the Pin Oak it seems it Peters out & WO takes its place.

    They are similar but not exactly the same.

    I remember My grandfather once said it makes great trailer flooring but we always just cut white oak for that.

    Normally when we take one down it’s a yard tree that’s gotten too big & it all becomes firewood. Very nice when dried.

    The bark is easily crushed relative to other tree bark. The wood is a yellowish, not Osage yellow, sort of a dirty yellow. Strong odor, pleasant in my opinion. The wood is somewhat light weight and easily rots in the center. Splits good and straight, easy to split.

    Here's a strange one, been down a while, no bark. 'Bout as twisted of grain as I've ever seen, like a corkscrew, wouldn't want to try splitting it...

    Sassafras smells so good when cutting it. Makes for an interesting smoking wood. Almost a root beer like aftertaste in the meat.

    I've smoked with a similar yellowish straight grained wood, different bark I think, and it tasted like herbs, like Italian seasoning almost.
