Steve the ironwood that grows around here may be a local name. Its in the tree book as ironwood or hornbeck I think? I'll have to look again. We do have a bit of striped maple around. Don't find to many bigger the 6"-8" round. I got two buck cherry in my yard. My gramps had a big old black birch that us kids always climbed on. Just wondering if there was any others. I live in upstate NY. We do have cedars a bit farther north, spruce, locust, I believe honey locust too. I believe the elm around here is one of our largest. Is any of that any good?
