    i know i know, i should wait till spring to figure these 80' + beasts out so i can see the buds, but i cant wait!

    im thinkin its a softwood , seeing how i know most of the hardwoods by the back of my hand.

    theres several of these on my property. im in northern ohio, and mostly sugar maple/bitternut hickory forests .

    the bark is pretty fissured and there are no branches for about 30' or so. these guys waive in the wind way up high.

    i do have some american basswood and american elm on the property too if that helps . the 3rd pic of a trunk is i think of the same species, though maybe not. its just as tall. youll notice the resemblance if you look higher up the trunk of the first tree in the middle pic . bark starts to smooth out too.

    pic 1 - tree 1

    pic 2 - tree 1's crown

    pic 3 - tree 2 (might not be same)

    Lots of different trees called Poplar. Same for Aspen, Cottonwood, Bam... all low grade hardwood. I have three varieties of Poplar on my land. I've also cut lots of it on pipeline construction to lay down in swamps for miles of roads. We called it rip wrap, not to be confused with blast rock which is also called rip wrap.

    learn something everyday.... around here, poplars are condsidered yellow poplars, or tulip trees cus the shape of their leaves. they also have round leafstalks , whereas bigtooths are flat stalks that make them chatter in the wind, and the leaf shapes are totally different. just my 2 cents on what the two tree types mean to me.

    Yellow Poplar/Tulip tree, I think.
    If it is, it's not junk wood.

    Trees that lose their leaves are considered hard wood. The weight/density of some hardwoods can be as light or lighter than some softwoods.

    I have a couple in my woods, they have large simple toothed leaves (large rounded teeth). If the snow aint too deep I bet if you dig down you can ID the leaves in an instant.
    Big Toothed Aspen

    Some bark variations....
