The bark looks like black cherry. The wood doesn't.

Looks like Cherry to me as well but the wood is lighter colored than normal. Maybe it got wet and changed color to a degree? I see some rot? Not sure.

Thought so. I think the rot kept clogging my saw. I had to blow out a lot of fine powder a couple times it wasn't cutting good.

Black Cherry, 100%. Show us a split, and take a whiff. It will have that lighter color if it's already fairly dry. Test it, you might be able to burn it tomorrow. If so, you're in for a treat when you fire up a split, then go outside and smell that heavenly fragrance. Your neighbors will be sending you thank you notes. ==c
