Few of these on one part of the property. I am pretty much clueless..

I am located south of Huntington WV, not too far from KY. If it's a regional species or something.

Thanks!

Genus Celtis.  In the elm family.  It is hackberry.

That was fast! Thank you! 

Any particular use of it? Quick search said softwood but good for wildlife.

The few of them I have are nearby a water hole that has lots of deer tracks during the year.

Beautiful grain but difficult to dry straight and flat because it has spiral grain like all the elms.

I concur, hackberry. In the seventies I hauled logs for a hardwood mill in Central New York. A tree length hackberry tree came in with a load and nobody could ID it; they got someone from the college of forestry to ID it. It occurs sporadically here, I have come to learn. Kinda middle of the road fuelwood.
