Black locust maybe? Bark looks similar to honey locust but the heartwood is way darker. Doesn't look like walnut bark. Someone who burns a lot of black locust will chime in on whether my guess is right.

Yeah I’m horrible with tree ID especially species not in my area; the bark looks a bit like locust or hickory maybe, I’m crossing my fingers!

I do burn a lot of Black Locust as for it being it I do not think so. I am like the second poster stumped.

I think a split wood help this ID.

Yeah unfortunately I’m at the in laws; the neighbor had some trees take down, all she could say was “silver” doesn’t look like maple nor did the leaves I found. I’m coming back for it this spring, when I get it home I’ll CSS and try a couple more pics of some split pieces to see if we can ID this.

My guess is elm (Siberian ?). Close-up pic of twigs with buds ?
The buds from OP's pic #1 (bottom right) looks like elm buds.
What does fresh split smell like ?

At first I thought a type of elm, not necessarily Siberian since I have a ton of that on my own lot and burn it regularly though I've seen some that can kinda throw me off from what I'm used to at home. Kinda leaning toward DandL's willow suggestion. I remember a buddy of mine thought my elm at home was willow, based on the pics of the logs i sent him. In other words they can look kinda similar.

MMH can you still get a close up picture of the bud ?
Siberian elm
Black willow
Willow will have small, slender, buds that are appressed and covered by one bud scale

I’ll try and see if I can find one tomorrow; I’m currently on operation have a baby lol; we’re at the mother in laws waiting for the little one to arrive and somehow got roped into some wood moving! I’ll check in the morning and see if there’s any twigs in the pile to check for the buds.

MMH thanks taking & posting pics.
To me it still looks like Siberian elm. Buds are small and dark (look like peppercorn) and don't lie tight against twig (not appressed).
Salix (willow) and Populus (cottonwood) the buds will be longer and more slender. Buds of willow lay against the twig.

Thanks for the help and replies; I’m terrible with ID lol, I think you or dandl are right. Hoping for the elm though it seems a smidge better haha
