Another tree ID
« on: October 14, 2021, 10:52:23 PM »
Not very often I come into stray logs but here I am only a week later. No guesses on this one yet. Thought I'd ask the gurus since I'll end up coming here for confirmation anyway.

Edit: I've removed the two leaf photos I think that's something else the logs are sitting on. Will try and update with a photo later.

Here's another few pics of the tree beside it, owner thinks it was the same. First leaf is up 10m or so, so that's an image at 17x zoom hah.

Yellow poplar..?

I might take the big log with the limbs and slab it, looks like it will be figured whatever it is. there's not really anything there worth sawing into boards anyway.

The leaves look like yellow poplar, as you suggest.  The logs don't make me think yellow poplar, although I guess they could be.

Here's the piece with the limbs slabbed up. Pretty nice really. Odd smell, almost like a cow shed but not quite.

Pretty happy I grabbed it whatever it is

The sawn wood is certainly not yellow poplar.  YP is diffuse porous.  Your slabs are ring porous.

"Yellow poplar", aka tulip tree, is Liriodendron tulipifera.  There is also a Liriodendron chinense, and this could be that.  Does not explain the wood grain discrepancy though.
Far as I can tell, it's 6 of one, half a dozen of the other...

   Not like my poplar. As a wild guess any chance it could be a Neem/Chinaberry of some sort? Also looks like some chestnut.

Yeah I could believe chestnut, looking at pictures.

The smell is something I've smelled before but I can't put my finger on it... Like when you've held someone's baby but handed it back because it's crapped its diaper, and you're not sure if you got any on you but you can definitely smell something off staying with you... Relateable?  :D :D

Ill fire through an email to a friend he may know.

I'll have a frame to affix said baby to, for such situations. And a pressure washer next to it with a warm water supply..

I tried.  Mom will veto that and send it back to the house for a recount.

I might be grasping at straws now but I dropped in again today, the arborist has done a remarkable job of cleaning up, no brush left anywhere that I could find.

I did see the area littered with these leaves, yellow and wilted and nothing around that seemed to resemble them though I didn't look that hard.

Does whatever might sprout these leaves align with what I've got here sawn?

Riight I think I'm done being a clown now. I went back for the other logs today and found a new growing point with new leaves.

Could it be elm?

Youre in new zealand right?  The cut logs have sprouted shoots on the ground?  

Only tree ive seen do that so far myself is locust.  Google rubinea.  

Are you holding individual leaves or are they stemmed together?

Appears to be from a different tree than previous photos.  Not especially elm-like.
