Tree Identification Help Please

Can anyone help me identify this tree? I thought it was Ash by the leaves but cutting into it it doesn't look like Ash to me. Any ideas? Thanks for the help! Pith is rotten through the trunk but I'll cut a few slabs with the chainsaw mill if it's worth anything.

Could also be black walnut. Any evidence of nuts on the ground?

Pretty sure that is hickory. Pecan would have more leaflets, as would black walnut

I agree with Steve. Pecan leaves look just like that. Pecan is a darker coloured wood anyway so I'd go with that.

The leaves say black walnut. Pecan leaves where the leaves meet the twig are in pairs meeting the twig in exactly the same spot on both sides. The picture shows them in slightly staggered pairs which is similar to the last few leaves on the twig of walnut trees.

I'd say Hickory. A pic of the bark would help to be sure.

Ohio is too far north for pecan trees, so I don't know about that. So excluding that, I'm about 95% sure it's Pignut Hickory. I've got a half finished bowl made of it in my shop somewhere...

I think you nailed it. The other hickory with 5 leaves is shagbark but that bark seems. fissured

Definitely a hickory. I used to get hickory and ash leaves confused...

+1 for Pecan.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Pecan leaf. The number of leaves are wrong, as well as thier orientation. This tree is a hickory.
