    I'm clearing some live trees for a garden and am wondering what I have here.
    I am realizing I am terrible at figuring these out, especially when the leaves are off.

    There are two kinds. I put my finger up in the picture to indicate the different ones. They look similar but the inside on the second is much lighter and has a lot more moisture.

    Thanks for any help.

    Thanks a lot for the responses. I was thinking walnut and had no clue on the other one. Most of the wood I've ever cut has already been dead.

    Thanks a lot.

    Number 1 is definitely Walnut; I can't tell about the other one with the orange stripe in the grain; any chance that we can get a straight-on picture of the bark for that one-kinda hard to see the bark details with it standing up like that.

    #2 pic shows a very few elm leaves on the ground. Wood looks like elm too.

    We're still waiting on a picture of the bark for a positive I.D......

    Maybe you and/or the wood is snowed in? ==c
