Looks like a Beech to me. Hard, dense wood and very heavy.

Only reason I knew it was looking at the pictures (excellent by the way :)). I cut a bunch of big ones all last winter on a big clearing job we had.

Almost all mine have that cankers disase. Fagus grandifolia Very good firewood,which does not matter to you,but spilts hard. Keep it dry and it's fine. It will rot out in the rain.

Very valuable if quartersawn and sawn 9/4 to 12/4 thick, that it, if it dries without major cracking.  Hand tool makers really look for it, and it is as hard to find as hen's teeth.

Those american beech grows slow over here ( Quebec) but we have some nice one. When they grow over 12 in. in diameter, our black bears just love to climb them and get the nuts  (faines in french) that grows in those beech (they will climb over 50 feet high to get them). We can easily see when a bear climbed them because their claws bites into the thin bark and the tree carrys the scarves for ever. The biggest one I cut on my land was 2ft across and nearly 200 years old..
