Another "what wood is this" thread.

Hey guys. I recently had a tree touch some power lines in my yard during a storm (what a light show!) and hydro came in and took it down for me.

I can't figure out what type it is, so I figured I'd try here since it's still in log form.

I sanded out the saw marks, and took pics from both ends. I added one of the bark in case it helps.

The tree should have leaves this time of year. Can you include a shot of the leaves?

I'm thinking it's an ash tree, but it's always nice to have some opinions from others who have more experience with wood identification than me.

Leaves don't look like ash to me. Hackberry perhaps? Very white like hackberry. But I'm not that God at this game. Lol

I don't think it's hackberry. The bark on hackberry is very distinctive and the leaves a little more oval. Any idea on what kind of seeds/fruits/nuts it produces?

Edit: perhaps this?

It's definitely not Ash, and Hackberry is a good guess, but the leaflets aren't serated enough. I'm thinking Boxelder.

If so, it looks like there is some red streaking going on.

The leaves at the top of the pic do look like box elder but the others don't to me. But I do see what looks like could be red streaking so box elder seems likely. Again, not my Forte but I'm trying to get better. Lol

Hope I didn't sound like I was trying to be an expert because I'm not either.

I think you guys are right. I remember seeing the box elder bugs hanging around last year. Thanks for the help!
