The neighbor gave it to me, but I don't know what it is. Looks like two different trees though.

Looks like more than one kind. Looks like maple with the bark...possibly norway. The barkless is hard to say.
Looks like norway maple
I'm a rookie at this, but let's see how I'm doin'......I agree, looks like 2 different woods.....first picture looks like Ash (guessing here)....and last looks like Maple (another guess)
Last looks like it could be tulip poplar.
the first pic is ash. poplar has green heartwood.
I see Ash and the last pic I'd say Bitternut Hickory, but I guess could be Norway Maple too.
Ash and Maple (soft).
I see possibly several different kinds maybe 3. That red barkless heartwood looks like cherry or red elm in #070, I see possibly ash in #071 & #072, #073 not as sure but a maple or hickory.
+1 on the elm.
Yeah, now that it's mentioned, I see that the barkless rounds are different. I couldn't even guess without a pic of one split though.
Ash, maple, maybe Norway, and something else as well. In the end I don't think it matters who gets it right because you get it right as it's all good firewood, and at the right price
If the first one splits easy, its Ash. If is nearly impossible to split it is Elm. Second is Norway Maple
Nice neighbor you have their. Good BTUs for you Mitch and at the right price.
I think the one in the first picture with bark on it is Ash. I am not sure about the barkless one, but if I had to guess I'd say Elm. The last photo shows what I think is a hickory. The bark looks sort of like Tulip Poplar, but the white wood and what I think is the beginning of a dark center looks like hickory - perhaps pignut hickory.
Ash first pic,Norway Maple last pic.Others are wood covered with snow
Split pics and end-grain closeups might help here. I think the first is White Ash, last is some type of Hickory. That barkless with thin, white sapwood looks a bit dark for Red Elm...could be Mulberry...tell us how much it sparks. Red Elm split would probably be a bit stringy.
