Found parts of this tree at the tree dump, can anyone give a positive ID from the leaves?

really hard to tell from that curled up leaf, Jack. Kinda looks like elm......
how about a pic of the bark or a split or something.....I'm better when I see those...
I will find a nice piece to photo tomorrow, it's already too dark here. No splits, all smaller trimmings.
Cottonwood for $200.00
cottonwood leaves are more spade shaped than aspen.
I vote cottonwood also.I have a big leaning one on my road I'll have to cut up when it falls. Keep looking at the leaves hoping it will turn into something else
I was thinking aspen, but we don't have a lot of cottonwood here
I could believe cottonwood or aspen, and not much else. They are both well placed in the dump and not really worth dragging out.
Hard to tell
Best, it's elm
Most likely in the lower BTU class poplars.
just guesses though
Not positive which branch it came from, one of these two. When I was cutting them they both seemed very similar, like maybe the same but in different stages of drying.
After those bark pics, I'm changing my vote to bigtooth Aspen.
Meh. At least it took little time and effort.
But that flat bottom on the leaf sure does look like cottonwood.
Ugh, I give up. c/s/s and then it's called BTU's.
It's already c/s, just needs to season.
I stand corrected!
The wood splits are Aspen, the leaf was cottonwood. I have Cottonwood and Quaking Aspen and bigtoothed aspen all sharing ground within 20' of each other around my horse pasture. Several got cut last year and the year before and some more are marked to get cut for next.
I dont mind processing the wood and having light wood on hand. It surprises me though that most conifers have higher BTU ratings. But I have white pine and Hemlock and they are in heavy wooded areas. They dont encroach on open fields.
You probably found both woods.
Common name...........American Poplar
Im gonna start going to the dump too. I have a friend who owns a tree service business and he dumps everything at a dump.
I highly recommend it. Where are you from?
Im just below the Adirondacks in the upper Hudson valley area. Zone 5.
Not that great for grapes but perfect for apples and poplar. lol.
Yep - without a doubt - Aspen.
Even more common; popple.
