My vote is cherry, although it doesn't look quite right.

I may be wrong... but I don't think it's cherry. Cherry has a redish tint to it but the new growth in cherry (called sap wood) is white and should be on the outer perimeter. A request to the OP - if this wood is local- where are you from? and could we see a picture of the bark? The leaves are an excellent picture in identifying the wood... but I need a little bit more information. As for Bodark... I've never even heard of it. I don't think it grows around here in New Hampshire USA

Its' never hot or cold in New Hampshire... its' always seasonal.

I will work on a bark picture, I live in middle Tennessee, and to my knowledge this tree does not produce fruit or nuts so bodark is out.

The Elm I've sawn smells bad and it was pretty wet. Strongest wood I've seen! I cut an 8" branch from the top down and it didn't start to break until it was down to 2" remaining.

Cherry has a distinctive smell also. Those sure look like fruit tree leaves to me...?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Does the tree produce colorful blooms in the spring?

The bark closest to the camera looks a lot like cherry bark. The other two, not so much.

I know not what it might be but I can tell you it is not Elm. Elm leaves are pointy and variegated and the bark is rougher as it is a fairly fast growing tree. In Missouri, we have Red Elm and White Elm......the red being stronger and slower growing of the two but the Dutch Elm Disease has taken care of most of our Elms with the exception of the Japanese Elm. It is a slow grower, hardy against the elements and really a pretty tree and I know little about the characteristic of the grain but the pictures shown are not any kind of Elm.
