With all of the cat faces I'd say it is a Firewood tree.

Hard to tell without seeing a branch up close.  Does look like pignut hickory to me.

hickory, walnut, ash and cottonwood all share that wire mesh bark pattern.  Structurally it doesnt look like hickory to me and im not fluent in those others. 

Look for nuts on the ground.  Native wolf might know.

I have seen box elder bark that looks like that, too.  Need a close up pic of the twigs and buds.

I found some small nuts, sort of  pecan looking, thin hard shells, some small ends of branches sugesting it is some sort of hickory

The bark pattern and numerous fine twigs in the crown look a lot like the bitternut hickory (Carya cordiformis) found in the southwest corner of Vermont, toward the north end of its range. The silvi guide shows it can also be called pignut hickory, but pignut hickory (Carya glabra) is also a different species. I'm not well versed in hickory identification, but that's what it looks like to me.

If it is bitternut, the buds will be sulfur yellow.

I was trying to see if the branching was opposite or alternate, but i can't quite see in the picture. Opposite would rule out Hickory (probably leaving Ash as the choice).
