Was fairly easy to split and on the heavier side...

Sorry for the double post at the bottom.. That pic is the bark from the trunk. The pics at the top are from a branch.
Red oak? What's it smell like
Isn't oak. I know what that looks and smells like. This didn't have a strong odor and its a little tough to describe the smell.
Norway or Silver Maple
I agree with Thistle.
Sure looks like silver maple, and with the sap really flowing this time of the year, she's bound to be wet and heavy!
I agree, one of the soft maples. Not Norway, I don't think.
I'd say Red Maple, although it could be Silver Maple. I don't see a lot of Silver Maple so I tend tot hink of Red first when I see soft maple. It is not Norway Maple.
I don't think its producing any sap. It came down last year in one of the storms we had.
Thats maple. c/s/s it. It won't be heavy next year!
Oh it will still have sap in it, even if it's been down for a long time. Trust me, that's a silver maple......
Maple sap is not like pine 'sap'. Its more like water........I can see by looking at that round in the pic that it is soaked.
Another vote for Silver Maple here....
was thinking white pine from the bark...but the interior is maple
100% sure it is maple of some kind. I cut a lot of sugar maple that looks just like that.
Some sort of soft maple. I would have guessed red.
Maple . . . guessing red.
