Default Hickory and applewood aging

A buddy gave me some hickory and apple wood logs, and I plan on cutting them into fist size chunk soon. The hickory is very white (internally) compared to the browner hickory I've bought at Lowe's in the past. Does it sound like its good, or do I need to wait a while on this one?

i use kiln dried hickory in my stick burner; buy it locally by the pallet. You are right, its very "white" but it burns hot & clean with great blue smoke (I preheat my splits) if you get a good base of hot coals.
