Not Birch nor Ash nor sycamore, that may have narrowed it down a bit.

Be sure to kill the fungus in them before using. Heat works best. bob

Some of that stuff you’re throwing to the curb would make some awesome pens.

I found some slight dampness in the larger logs but for the most of it it was already dried ready for use.

Tempting as it is to take credit, truth is I never heard of hackberry till now.

“The spalted hackberry you see in some of my descriptions is caused from rotting and fungi…”

but it sure is a nice spalted wood :)

Several of the large logs, not shown in pictures, I cut into 1 1/8” thick boards, these I plan on making furinture out of, thanks Waho 609

It’s OK Ted I would have done the same thing LOL, I started to state “without looking through my projects” LOL

I guess it doesn’t matte much… people still keep guessing at it :) Anyway, sorry for taking the short cut, but it was just too obvious to resist. I almost kept it to myself, but then figured somebody else would and then take all the credit. Still nice wood though.

We also have a lot of spalted hackberry in my area. Hackberry seems to spart very quickly in our hot humid climate (more so than any other wood). It is rare to cut a dead hackberry that doesn’t have some spalting. Curious huh? It also tend to get ‘punky’ very quickly.

Quite a haul, Randy, looks like a bunch of “pre-band-saw-boxes” to me.
