    We had the feller buncher seperate the Doug Fir and cedar into piles for us. None of it has bark anymore. I went to cut some slabs and found this. Thought it was just punky at first, but its hard. Pretty light and not dense.
    What am I looking at? Type of Alder?
    Located in PNW.

    Bigleaf Maple my first guess, does not look like alder to me.

    You say 'light' - how long has it been drying?

    End grain pic would help to identify.

    I think its red alder. We have some around, but it shouldn't have been in the pile. I didn't recognize it de-barked.
    By light, I mean its noticeable when compared to fir or cedar. Its been sitting as a log for 2 years before slabbed.
