If it is gum, then there are two different trees in your pics.  The first three pics are definitely ash.  The fourth pic (which I did not pay much attention to since the the first pics were definitely ash) is likely the gum you speak of.  This would explain the spiral grain in the split piece.  
Okay...the zany thing is they are just different portions of the same tree!  :D :)
BTW...can we get an opinion or some feedback from, Red Green? ;D

If Danny tells you it's ash, then it's ash.  If Danny tells you tomorrow is Easter, then you better start dyeing some eggs. :D

Different ash than what we have up here, if it is. Our mature ash has bark like in this link, photo at top on the link below.

I'd have to see more of the limbs and buds. Looks like the yard there is full of them, that would settle it. ;D

ELM is not opposite branched.  BLACKGUM is not opposite branched.  SWEETGUM is not opposite branched.  ASH is opposite branched.  The grain can spiral in some trees of a species that usually have straight grain.  Trees are individuals, like people.
I will vouch for this.   Ive split and sold 10 bush cords of nearly all ash this month from a hedgerow the boss said to clear out.    Lots of 35 + foot main stems from 14 inches down to 3  is what I cut.    Some of them split with the wedge two inches in.   Some of them have a curly grain that the splitter wedge runs three quarters thru or more toseperate

Yeah ash can be easy or hard as the old hermit found out about shelter belt ash.
