Can anyone tell me what type of wood I have here?
I'm in west Michigan if that helps.
Those the same tree?
Snow doesn't help.
My first shot is Sugar maple for the first pic and Bitternut hickory for the second. More confident of the Sugar maple...
ATH is right, snow doesn’t help.
I’m guessing there are no leaves anywhere? What about the top of the tree.. can you get a picture of a twig?
I’m not sold on sugar maple just because they don’t typically look like that here. Looks more like a mature red maple.
Second one looks like hickory.
upper one sassafras?
I like sugar maple for the first. Second looks like ash to me.
Ash and Bitternut hickory can look pretty similar. The reason I went with hickory is because the bark is a little more "flat". Again...with the snow, hard to say.
Thanks for all the replies. I want to set some of this aside for woodworking projects. This at least helps me feel that that is worthwhile.
