Topic tags/keywords: firewood wood unknown fire lumber identification help burn heat wood stove fireplace

I live in Brentwood CA 94513. It’s in northern CA/ the Bay Area. I found this firewood for free and picked it up but I am dying to know what kind of wood it is. We do a lot of farming out here with many orchards but there are also a lot of natural trees. I’ve been going back and forth with my dad so if anyone could somehow name this wood I would be eternally grateful. Thanks for your time.

Looks like a fruitwood. Maybe a pear, peach, apple, or cherry.

I was thinkin Cherry. That’s the main attraction and the season passed quite some time ago. Thank you so much for your answer. Cherry would burn relatively well when dried correct?
