wood species id? This is the easiest splitting and best lighting kindling I have ever seen. Used all last winter and want more..

@bhaugen
The wood almost looks like oak. Which can split fairly easily
@joeyh

@onepict @bhaugen seems far too easy and light for oak.. I know red oak and it's 10x harder

@joeyh
There's an actual wood named "purple heart", but it's tropical.

@onepict

@joeyh
How is the weight on it? Depending on that and how well you felt it burned you might be able to find it based on high BTU species
@bhaugen

@bhaugen @joeyh
It almost looks like black walnut, but apparently that doesn't burn well.

We have French oak where I live. So there's a similar tone between the heartwood and the outside.

@joeyh If you can ask the source / supplier, check there.

I'm thinking maybe maple. Certainly not elm.

This is geared more at non-felled specimens, but:

@joeyh Looks a bit like black locust and but could be a bunch of other things. Do you have an image with leaves or bark on? What region of the world is this?

@joeyh try plantnet.org, especially if you can get a picture of the bark.
