    As the title says, can you identify this wood?
    First two pictures are the same tree

    There are several types of wood in here. I can identify the aspen. That's about it.

    And last. Possibly the same kind as the first two?

    By no means am I a wood expert or a carpenter, but the first ones look like what we (I) in southern N.C. call "scrub oak". Not sure though. Hope that helps some.

    Cool, thanks. I thought it was some sort of oak, too.

    I was told on another forum that it could be pine, so I'm not going to take any chances (just in case). This lovely piece of wood will become a door stop for hubby's hobbit house.

    Yeah, it does kind of look like red pine!

    You can always ask an arborist! Or find a reference guide, it's so much easier to identify when there are leaves on a tree.

    Hubby found it at a country club located in (funny enough) Castle PINES. It was just on the ground and he brought it home. It's a really heavy piece of wood, so I don't know how well it would do in an enclosure anyway. Door stop it is.

    Pull a bit of bark off of it and smell it. If its pine, will know!

    Good suggestion, Merlin.
