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.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.
Haven’t been able to split any of it I’m at the in laws and just been moving it I’ll be back in the spring to get it
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.
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 hahaMMH 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.
