I did a search this morning, & found this wood identification site.

Exotic Olive wood.

Here’s a good one for tree identification in the winter.

I’d like to share this with all of you.

Great site, but takes forever to load the first page.

He’s been collecting that information for a long time.

Thanks Dick. I had a piece the other day that I couldn’t identify, and I mentioned to my husband that there had to be something out there on the Web. But then I forgot about it. This is perfect.

Has anyone visited a good site that also includes what the tree looks like when alive. I am especailly interested in the bark. I would like to start milling my own wood, but first need to know how to identify fallen trees or abandoned logs.

Any help?
