I am pretty bad identifying wood, except for that I turned. So can you help me to figure out what tree is this?
Area is Upstate New York. I have a bunch of these trees in my backyard, but they are slowly dying.

I'm guessing an Ash tree,

Not ash--not hornbeam--definitely cherry--rare species known as occupied cherry!

Looks like cherry to me, lots on my Vermont property. Ash is a white wood.

I think Robert was kidding. "Occupied" cherry because of the large hole meanig that something might actually be living in there.... tho the more plausible explaination is that a Pileated Woodpecker has drilled in to get at the bugs in the tree.

Could  be cherry, but does cherry have the leaves so that they are not directly across from the "stem" as in butter nut?

This Pic is butternut, was previous post is hornbeam

You may be able to check out from the local library a leaf and twig key guide book which would be very helpful.

My first thought was ash, but ash leaves are supposed to be opposite each other, and the color of the wood doesn't look right.  Could be a black walnut?

The upward branch in the left photo, and the bark and heartwood in the third photo, seem consistent with black walnut but not the leaves in the middle photo

Walnuts and ashes both have compound leaves--these are plainly opposite leaves.  And the red heartwood is a dead giveaway.

Vermont has mostly brown ash if looking at Ash trees. Call your local extension agent. They will come out and can tell you.  Since your in southern Vt., it could be walnut.
