Guys... more than  few of you need to either buy a book on trees or at least learn how to google these things. Grin

A quick google will show you that the bark shown by the OP does not look like walnut bark nor do the leaves.


This is a shot of walnut bark and its leaves and a shot of cherry bark.

Notice the difference of the bark with the OP's shot and the difference of the leaves with what I posted of cherry leaves.

These were found by doing a simple Google search. Roll Eyes

Not Walnut.  Thumbs Up

Personally, my biggest problem is in identifying the wood AFTER it is down and cut into blocks and sitting on my shelf for so long that i forgot what the heck it is and whatever I wrote on it has misteriously disappeared. Alot of really nice, mystery wood!!

Don.. no apologies needed. Please, don't take it personally.  Smiley

Your first post was probably the best suggestion. Smiley

Ash leaves are opposite and the leaves in your picture are alternate, and the bark is not Ash.  What is the location of this tree?

I would say Cherry also. Hop hornbeam and ironwood are different. Ostrya virginiana, the American hophornbeam has a flaky bark while Carpinus caroliniana (American hornbeam Ironwood) has a smooth bark that looks like muscles. Hope this helps too.

As an old grunt forester of 50+ years in the woods I assure you that leaf structure does not lie--have all three in my yard and shop.  And many, many more species.

Guys, thanks for the replies. Sorry for not checking the post, but I was/am in vacation.
The location is Rochester NY.
I just remember last year I needed to cut a small one of these down and I turned some nice boxes with what I got. The grain was a little bit figured and the wood color (after finished with wax) was a nice honey color. It didn't seem a classic piece of cherry wood.
I still have few of these trees, but they are slowly dying, attacked by insects then wood peckers.
