    Ja, it's Ash. Around here we have Black Ash and some other kind. That is some other kind. Nobody here can tell me what kind it is.

    Looks like ash to me. Look at how the bark has started to flake off. That is typical of ash when the ash borer starts working inside.

    For sure it is ash. I mostly get green and white and it doesn't look like either. What about black or even pumpkin ash?

    The cut looks too light and the bark is too different for black ash. The wood and bark look more like white ash, but I agree that the leaves look different.

    It's most likely white ash then. I just cut down a fresh one today and it was the same way.
