Wood ID please

Recommended Posts

Sorry it's another one! There was some felling works just outside of work this week so went and asked about the wood. Bloke said yeah help yourself when we're gone, there's some nice ash over there and nodded towards a heap. There were two different types of tree, one i thought was beech, and this stuff. Is it diseased ash or something else. I'll be taking some blanks from it before turning it into firewood because I think it's a great colour. Thanks for the help again 46f57d52a193d2eefa5f2e2795a940c0.jpg179a4141de2edddc58626a734f2c4103.jpgc3818d359b9b17e6fa277f00843ea78c.jpg

Sorry there's no brash or buds to show

Looks like ash to me? I've felled loads with weird and wonderful coloured heart wood, did some near a sewage plant a few years back and the timber was maroon and stank!

Thanks Python, I feel a bit necky doubting the pro just I had never seen ash that colour.

 

Steve, I'll try and get you a better shot in daylight if you like. Its pretty heavy but not oak or beech heavy. Don't know about hard or soft tbh, all i did was chuck it in the car then chuck it on the driveway. I actually thought the first load which had been cut that day had a smell of chocolate when it was in the car. But my nose has been thumped too many times to be relied on :laugh1:

that's why i need a look at the grain as i was thinking elm but need to see the rings to be sure.

 

in my experience elm usually fades into the sapwood rather than the sharp demarcation we can see here so i reckon it is a bit of ash but you never know.
