    The cut end looks like Maple but I'm questioning the bark. Any ideas without it being split?

    Heavy stuff? The bark almost looks like it could be some kind of Hickory...hard to say at this point.

    Punky hickory or maple, tough to tell in its current state. Split one open and repost with an end grain and a middle view.

    I believe these fellas are correct, looks like Hickory that is getting a little punky but still should throw some heat!

    Looks like maple to me and I would lean towards red maple.
