    This might be a tough one. Sorry the pics are alittle dark. I took pictures of 2 different bark areas and the leaf areas, although no leaves. My woods mainly consisted of oak hickory ash poplar and sassafras. This tree fell during sandy, has been standing mostly dead, no bark on the first 20ft and the roots were rotted, causing it to fall. At least 4 cords in it. Thx

    Well, I doubt white oak, they have alternating buds/branch growth, this looks opposite growth. That means it could only be maple, ash, paulownia, catalpa, buckeye, horsechestnut, nannyberry, or flowering dogwood. All other trees have alternating buds. That narrows it down ;lol !

    A good picture of that twig with buds and leaf scasrs should confirm it. Put a size reference object (ruler, coin, etc.) near it, too.

    I'd say that is Sugar Maple (also known as Hard Maple). I can see a few opposite branches on the twig and the flaky bark look like Sugar Maple. That should be excellent firewood.

    I'm liking what I hear! Thanks guys. tree was standing dead for years. Grounds are loaded with boulders, alot of the trees that fell, via sandy... uprooted, exposing large rocks these trees must have grown around.
