Anyone know what kind of wood this is? I had a large tree come down and I just got around to cutting it up. I decided to take a section and rip it to maybe make a bench or something.

Reverse image search isn’t much help so here goes!

I added some of the leaves and of course the dollar bill.

They look almost like birch leaves, but a little skinny at the base.

Pictures of the bark would help.

ETA: I'm going with beech.

The bark and leaves look a bit like an elm, other than that I got nothing.

The dollar bill isn’t big enough.

I thought Elms were very rare because of Dutch Elm disease??

Arbor Day tree identifier says some kind of Ash.
could be ash. It’s pretty hard wood. Annular rings are really tight and this thing is heavy. It’s about 16” across and 48” long but it weighs 121.5 pounds.
