so what im wondering is what kind they are and are they worth anything cause there is probly 30-40more of them but will take some work to get them. With land owners permission ofcourse. the landowner actually had these all pushed up in a big pile with a bunch of dead black poplar and are on a collision course with a bombfire later this summer. i have turned a couple bowls from a chunk of it just waiting on dryin now to see how nice they turn out but they look good but im a begginer to this stuff so any info would be great. thanks barry Jenkins alberta canada

Hi… Since you’re in Alberta.. I gonna throw out a guess of Box Elder.. hard to tell without leaves or wood pics. :)
