I'm gonna say ash on this one. Leaves, bark, branches all look like ash to me.

+1 for hickory (Carya) - VT Dendro - pignut hickory
Look at flowers (male catkins) in last pic. Hickory is a monoecious species (male & female flowers on same tree); ash is dioecious (separate male and female trees)
Branching habit: hickory = alternate; ash = opposite
Wood splinters like hickory (pic 1)
Twig - bud scar form "monkey face"
Leaves look like hickory
Compound - 5 leaflets/ leaf (pignut or shagbark)​
With tight bark (not shaggy) probably pignut​

I call that pignut hickory, though the only hickory I know with certainty is shagbark.
