Wood ID help

Not sure if this is the correct part of the forum. Doing some cleaning up near the hunting camp, and a pine fell on this tree after a big storm came through here in western upstateNY.

What kind of wood is this, a willow or poplar? Thanks!

Looks to me like American Hornbeam-Super hard when dry, used to be used as wagon wheel spokes and tool handles. Gene

Agreed it looks like hornbeam aka ironwood. Fun fact that what they use to make door panels on a rolls Royce. Hard on ya tools to work with

Woodworking is much cheaper than a therapist!!

Yup, hornbeam. Good stuff. Lumber looks like beech, but will gray stain if not milled & dried right away.
