Tulip. aka Yellow Poplar
The yellow grain is much more prominent than shown in the photo. Almost looks fake like a cheap wood stain might.
I'd like to see a better picture of the bark. I don't really have a guess.
Hard to tell from that pic but the grain looks like pine or fir.
Looks like hemlock to me.
Sorry not Hemlock it's Sumac
Sumac is very light,less density than Basswood or Butternut even.Plus it glows under a blacklight,try it & see. I've seen some pretty cool smaller vases & other turned art objects made from it.If you're lucky to find 5" to 8" rounds,they dont show up too often.
