Topic tags/keywords: resource question carving

I am hoping someone can id this. It was from a cutting of several large branches that fell into my yard from across the neighbors yard. I can’t use the wood stove anymore, so I have about a cord of various diameter pieces. It’s smooth and as hard as the oak I think it is. But I know plants as well as anyone knows what’s on the underside of the third rock from he left in the shot of Armstrong setting foot. ;)

Based on there being no picture, pretty sure it’s Alder.

Ripper, I’m pretty sure Fridge will back you up on that. He’s Lumber Jocks foremost authority on Alder and proponent.
