my landlord brought me some wood, and said he thought it was ash. i don't know one from the other (except oak, pecan, and mesquite).

that doesn't look like ash,ash has a more pronounced bark,kind of a diamond tread pattern to it.
how ever i'm sure there are different types,have you done a google search of it ?

Chris, That looks more like red maple or sugar maple than anything I can think of, ash has much more coarser ridges than that, IMHO


Here is sugar maple…similiar?

Looks like a silver maple. We don't have sugar maples down this far south but we do have red and silver maple. I've been told the southern maples are ok, but not a strong maple flavor like the northern maples are.

Chris, I don't know if its maple, but I'm 99.9% sure its not ash. I little harder to tell from a pic. I've split a ton of ash with a monster maul so I have an intimate knowledge of it.
