    It came down in a storm last week and it's a cousin of my GF's. Is it poplar?

    From the look of it maybe popple( Big Tooth Aspen) or Linden( Basswood) dang stuff goes punky standing dead and then keels over. Just sliced one up from a storm next door- whole thing was punky Even cut and split in stacks it tends to rot. I have a nice vertical mushroom farm on a stack of it.

    I'd say from the way it came down and the bark that it's Basswood. It's common in Wisconsin.

    Thats a widowmaker there. Looks like its been dead for a while. I would've taken that bad boy down before it fell being so close to the house. My luck it would've fallen on the house.

    It's an old dead punky tree. Not much burnable.
