Just another option. Sometimes your ag. extension agent can help, some know more than others. A state university agriculture or forestry department may help. If you saved the cutoff, send a piece to your local authority. They don’t charge, at least in Texas. The can do a moisture and spec. gravity test, and most know wood species by the cell structure, or just take a glance and know it’s red oak or chestnut.
