That looks like shagbark hickory, and you will need a splitter, that is some hard splitting wood and I am talking much smaller rounds then you have there. I don't know the process, but you can make a sweet shagbark syrup from the bark.

Chain saw will do wonders! At least it will get them into manageable sizes.

Yeah, I got some real hickory syrup at a festival last year. That stuff was awesome.

yes I think I am going to cut them in half then split them. and my buddy's dad just told me that I can use his B.A.L.S. ( big A** LOG SLPITER) if I make him some ribs. I am going to get the other load of apple tomorrow or the next day then maybe this weekend split all the wood I need split.

For the amount you have, a couple of steel wedges and a 6 or 8 lb sledge hammer will do just fine. Really it won't take as long as you think.

You can rent one at Home Depot for a few dollars.
Go ahead and get another load of wood, rent the spliter and sell a load.
Nice score.
