wood identification?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just got home after a month of travel and found this lying in the yard next door. I'm wondering if any of you might be able to identify it. I'm thinking it is a hard wood since the limbs are bare.

I'm pretty good at identifying wood in person but I can't tell. I would guess maple?

I was thinking either maple or oak, but I'm just not good and telling.

Based on the leaves on the ground around it I say it is a white oak. Definitely not a maple.

Cool...I'm going to drag it over to my back yard and let it sit for a bit..

Thanks

I work in a sawmill for almost 30 years as the lumber inspector and from what I am able to see, it appears to be pig hickory. The top pic shows brown spots in the end of the wood piece and those are bird pecks which is typical in hickory. Also the stringy type bark in pic 2 is common on pig hickory
