Yet another log ID wanted

Recommended Posts

Processing a lorry load of ash and at first glance thought these were ash as well but on closer inspection not sure on either.

 

First one the grain looks like sycamore but never seen bark on a sycamore like this but to be fair I don't get out much :biggrin:

 

Second one not the foggiest.

 

Two pictures of each sample.

First and 4th pics are definitely sycamore the third pic does look like ash with darker heartwood but cant really make out the 2nd. Any better pics without moss on

Surely the 4th is the 3rd taken from the other direction ?

Think its all Syc .

 

Don't see much Syc apart from what comes off the farm hedges. Does it get bark as in pic two and the dark heartwood? Guess the answer is yes as that's what you both think just not seen it before :thumbup1:

I'd have said it's Ash.

Does Chalara do that down the centre of the trunk?

 

The grain does not look like ash close up but would not bet my life on it.
