Yard tree in Texas. My first guess is Chinaberry.
« on: May 21, 2020, 01:29:55 PM »
Never cut a Chinaberry so I can't be sure.  Thought it might be Mulberry at first, but the fresh cut wood seems way too dark - looks like Mulberry that's been sitting out for a couple months.

Unfortunately no pictures of the leaves.  I'm including a fuzzy 13 year old picture from google maps to at least show the structure.

Well, the tree guy back to me so I have my answer, but I'll see if anyone wants to take a stab at it.  It's not Chinaberry.

Definitely not Chinaberry.  I have 2 of those sitting in a burn pile.

I thought maybe royal pawlonia but can't get a good read on leaves from the pic.

I've cut up Tree of Heaven and never seen it with such dark color.

Pawlonia is very soft, lighter blond color and not any interesting color/grain either. Very light weight when dry too. U of KY did a project on them some years ago.  I always wondered why they like them in Asia?

Forgot to come back and left everyone hanging.  It was Mimosa.
