Any ideas what this wood is?

Recommended Posts

Folks. Any ideas as to what this wood is? The tree was about 20 feet tall. Hopefully the photos will be clear enough for someone to enlighten me. I initially thought something like walnut, but could be way off the mark with that idea! Thanks.

pics of the bark would help.


i can't see any medullary rays so think it may be something else.


split a lump and smooth it off take a pick and it might be more obvious to me...


it looks a bit like a birch at first glance but is the wood brown?

There were several other Rowans in the same area. However, the leaves on the others were far more established than this tree. Perhaps this one was just lagging behind a little. The bark did look similar - it was just the leaf issue which almost pushed me away from Rowan.
