    Been advertised to me as hardwood with 0% moisture.

    Interested to know what wood it is.

    Thanks!

    Sycamore is pretty crap to burn by itself.. I wouldn’t pay for it

    Not Sycamore I don’t think. Looks more like some sort of Lime

    Nothing wrong with Sycamore if that’s what it is. I’ve heated my house with it for the last 5 years and I’ve got enough for the next four years in the garden.

    Not sycamore, that would be far whiter, smoother and closer grained. Nothing wrong with burning sycamore if it’s not too old.

    A poplar or lime? Can see the start of a sucker on the bark side.
    In one of the pictures it looks shattered as much as split, so either very old or was standing dead/diseased tree.

    Zero percent moisture would be charcoal.

    Not all hardwood is good and not all softwood is bad.

    Looks like conifer to me. If its a hardwood it should have a bit of weight to it. That is likely to burn really quick. I wouldnt buy it!

    In the meantime – if it helps – more pics!

    Sycamore is awesome.

    from the ring width, its a fast grown timber – from the outside it looks like debarked hardwood. Someone said poplar – i’t may be. If it is it may burn quick but cool. 20% moisture content is well dried firewood, so someones talking crap.

    Poplar or some sort of birch would be my guess.
