    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
