    I think it is a cherry, but it doesn't look quite right for Black Cherry, the usual large wild cherry. Instead I think it might be an edible cherry. Cherry is good firewood - medium density and should be seasoned nicely by next fall.

    Now that I see the leaf, I agree it is purple plum, an ornamental tree. Wood will be the same as cherry.
