We had a stem come in amongst some WRC. Anyone got an idea of what it might be?

 

Fairly heavy, no significant smell when milling, slightly reddish heart wood.

There wasn't a lot of bark on the stem when it came in. It might just be a spruce, but the bark seemed a bit more textured than what we usually see on spruce logs (but then the stem was quite a bit bigger than we usually see, around 55cm diameter.)

Thats too far for me Stubs, I know Douglas is reddish, the bark looks good and it’ll outstrip anything around it size wise.

We get some Douglas in every now and again. The bark doesn't look right and the coloured heartwood isn't red enough.

Reading up on Grand Fir and Red Fir (and the other fir species in general), to be honest it could be either of them.  So I think we can say it is a Fir.

Without the bark and without doing some microscopic investigation  I don't think I'll be able to say more than that.

Cheers for the ideas though.
