    I was told it's maple but now I'm not sure. I've noticed it has a musty smell and it splits relatively easily If it's straight grained. I live in the seattle, area. The tree has alot of moss on it and oozes a jelley like substance.

    The maple I just split was very wet. This is the time of year people collect sap for syrup.

    The grain of some of that wood looks like ash. Also the bark has the typical x pattern of ash. If it was maple it is most likely Norway Maple. Maple usually smells somewhat sweet, ash to me has a salt like smell.

    More than likely big leaf maple.
