|jaidexl||That looks an awful lot like pine to me, and the texture on the trunk even matches the dead pine stumps we have around here, that wood peckers and other varmints live in. I suppose weathering could have a similar effect on other types of wood, just be careful what livestock you add in with it, if you decide to use it. Pine is no good for fish, great for making turpentine, though.|

If you havent found a buyer yet, I would suggest posting on this site:
www.monsterfishkeepers.com in the buyers and sellers market forum
Many people on that site have upwards of 10,000 gallon tanks...

I hate to burst your bubble, but a piece that large requires a Huge tank, on the scale that most of us only dream about. I think finding a buyer for it will be very tough, at least if you want it to go in an aquarium. You likely could sell it for landscaping however.
It is a gorgeous piece.

|blair||Oak is safe. Several members here use it.|

|Coltonorr||I also think Oak and Pine decay too quickly in water to be used in an aquarium|

I really like the rotten look of it I am not a big fan of smooth driftwood, but everyone,s got their own taste.
I am not sure if it is Cedar, it was in a pretty large area with almost only pines and red oaks. I was thinking it was a red oak but I may be wrong. anyways thanks for the input so far!

|ESK07||I'm pretty sure Cedar leeches out toxins and isnt a suitable wood for aquaria use...|

that's a gorgeous cedar stump right there.
If you want to sell it whole, you'll probably have to find a local buyer. waaayyy to big and heavy to ship intact
it looks like that there's two distinct root sections, one option might be to cut the lower one off, and maybe cut some of the height off the top, and you could probably fit it in a smaller tank, as long as you don't mind a bit of it sticking out the top
I did somthing similar with this stump. I cut down some of the roots so I could fit it snuggly into a 20 gallon high.
