Fresh Cut Holly: What do I have?

Jerry Hall
>Got some fresh cut today, up to 10" Dia. What is the nature and uses of this wood? Green turn? Mill and dry for small objects? Rough turn boxes? How does it season? Inclined to crack easily? All thoughts appreciated. I assume it is Holly because it has shiny prickly, bright green leaves and is white and fine grain.

Thanks!
