I have three chunks off wood I picked up in Southern Michigan and I don't know what they are. Two are from the same tree. I did not get leaves and am having a hard time identifying from the bark.
The bottom pics are similar to Honeylocust. though ours here are even more peeled away from the tree around the edges than those.
Top one is hard to tell without seeing the wood but I'd say red oak. I guess it could also be an elm but most elms that are similar to oak bark are more furrowed than that. I'm sticking with RO.
Rereading my post I sounded unsure about the Honeylocust the way I phrased it - I didn't mean to come across that way. I'm 99% sure it is HL & about 85% sure on the RO guess.
the top one looks like it has a different colour heart wood which is rare for red oak to have I would say the bottom 2 are red oak and the top maybe ash or white oak
I agree. Top bark looks exactly like an Ash. Bottom 2 are locust.
The top is ash. The bottom two could also be soft maple (red maple).
Top is red oak with the dark gray color a tannic reaction to the saw blade?
I work a lot with honey locust and I agree that the top log sure looks like it.
"I work a lot with honey locust and I agree that the top log sure looks like it. "
The top log (it's a crotch) sure as hell ain't Honeylocust.
You're right, I meant the second photo was honey locust, not the top one.
The top piece looks like Ash or Box Elder. If it is box elder there would have been lots of suckers on the tree. The bottom two I,d bet a dollar they are Red Oak.
