    I would say some type of Hickory. Looks like a live tree...any nuts on the ground that you can get a pic of?

    There's no nuts, probably due to the drought.

    Book sez Pignut and Shagbark usually have five leaflets on the compound leaf, so I'm guessing it's something else. Shellbark range is in your area, but it says it's uncommon, and is supposed to have orange twigs. Frankly, I'm baffled...
    At any rate, it is primo hardwood...remember where it is and grab it when you can. :cool:

    Looks like mockernut hickory, leaves have more then 7 to a rachis. Thin spikes on the edges of leaves.

    "...leaves that are very aromatic when crushed." There's a good test.

    "leaves densely hairy beneath...Twigs brown, stout, hairy, ending in large, hairy bud." That's a bud in the pics, is it not? It appears JOHN BOY has nailed it. :cool:
    But we still want more pics... ==c

    I'm with John Boy. Looks like a mockernut to me. Bark and the 7 leaflets...

    Save some of that for cooking on the pit or for the smoker.......love that hickory when it's burning!

    Yeah, lookit the bark in that last pic...real similar to Pignut.
    Had to tell from here, but they look kinda hairy... Didn't take you long to get back over there when you heard "Hickory," did it? :)

    It's all done, from the break in the trunk down it was 2/3rds punk. :(
    Should I drop the small oak it broke the top out of when it fell?

    I think you might have a mockernut hickory. Do a google search on MOCKERNUT BUDS and also MOCKERNUT LEAF SCAR. That should confirm it for you.

    It makes little sense to leave it.

    With the leaves still on it, hard to believe that was punked out...maybe it was dying and that's why it broke off where it did.
    Yeah drop that damaged one. Even if it lives, it will never do much and it's just taking resources from better trees that are nearby.
