    Here is some more pictures of the bark.
    Ps when I picked it up I rings it was starting to sprout shoots out from the rings.
    pps my fault there is a chunk of birch in the bottom corner,the last few years I've split plenty 9f maple,ash,oak,sycamore, birch,pretty much most wood for the burner but not this kind.I think it's some kind or ornamental tree but not sure?

    I had some wood similar to this and i identified it as cherry as the older the tree is it loses the lenticels which makes cherry quite distinctive. Having said that it does look similar to immature oak.

    Looks like Alder to me. Holds a lot of water. I wouldn't buy it by the ton.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......
