Fine load of wood. Looks like the barks slipping already so you've got a head start on drying. I know ya'all have different species and names but, that looks like a load of red oak. Maybe post oak. That's what I would have guessed if the door on the pickup was open on the other side anyways .
I'll be glad when it is wood cutting weather here .

The shorter the lengthsl you cut the easier they are to split. If the stuff is pretty big I like to cut it into 6" slices, leave it to season for a year then it's a piece of cake to split. Nothing worse than having a log that you can't split.

Its mainly Yellow box with some Redgum, the Yellow box (Eucalyptus melliodora) is dense and heavy weighing about 1100 kg/m3.
If you try to split it with a hand held wood splitter it just spits the splitter out and you can hardly see the wound you have made.

I cut it all into foot wood, that way we can use it in the lounge heater too.
