Hey guys can you help me identify this log?

I think I got it from the local arborist (santa cruz, ca) just recently split it open and found a nice two tone coloring.
I don’t recognize the bark and don’t think it’s native.

Any thoughts on what it is?

thanks

Not sure what’s it’s called – but it is pretty. I’d probably try to get the email for the arborist and send him the pick – probably could tell you in a flash what it is. I’d be interested to know, the ribbon look is intriguing.
