    I'm pretty sure I know what type of wood this is, but I figured I would confirm with the experts on here. Thanks in advance......

    Quite typical of that tree too to see the purple or pink in the grain.

    Sheep love to eat those leaves. Also the damned boxelder bugs come with those trees out here in the west (it is also a western tree species). I have cut several big old ones down and they had hollow trunks. Odd colors in the wood and bark is typical here as well. Not the best heat as firewood goes, but it burns well and evenly.
