    Default Tree Id needed

    I cut down a tree I thought was an ash but after further review I don't know what it is. It was very stringy when splitting and the heartwood was quite red. Here are some pics and see what you think.-dsc_0008-jpg-dsc_0006-jpg-dsc_0005-jpg-dsc_0004-jpg-dsc_0003-jpg-dsc_0002-jpg

    Looks like some type of hickory to me.

    I can't see the bark too well, but I'd say it's a hickory variety (maybe pignut, bitternut, or red hickory).

    Does the heartwood have a hickory (bacon) smell?

    It really didn't smell like bacon and was quite moist. Here's a hi-res of the bark. I'm thinkin pignut hickory also. Click on the pic and then click it again and it should enlarge..The 2 on top should also go hires if double clicked..

    It is indeed hickory. Looking it up in my Trees of Ontario (They don't really know there is a border between us) it is either Bitternut or Pignut hickory. Either way it is great burning, rough splitting firewood.

I dragged out cut split and stacked about 6 face cords from last Monday to Thursday. The tractor pic shows part of the 1 Hickory trunk I dragged out..

    Now that I see the bark and leaves, I'd say definitely pignut, though I wonder about the nuts. Does the nut have ribs? How many?

    Different hickories can hybridize with each other, so sometimes you will run across one that has features from two species! This one looks like pignut from the bark and the leave structure, but not sure about the nuts yet.

    If you go back to post #5 and double click the top pic it will show you a close up of the nut. It appears to have 3 ribs....
