Or an odd ball Cherry??  Individual trees can look much differently than how they are "supposed" to look.

Oddball cherry may be just right.

Black cherry was the first thing that popped into my mind but I have only seen 2 in this part of the world that were over 12 DBH. That is what made me double-take.

I have worked in equatorial Missouri and I can see where your guesses of persimmon and blackjack oak are coming from. It does make me quite happy that neither of you are even remotely correct but then again, this species doesnt grow that far south so its hardly fair.

Yellow birch is the correct answer. An old, angry and slow growing yellow birch at that. Of all the species growing around here yellow birch has the most polymorphic bark and will occasionally give weird examples like this one.

looks like they are clearing a space.  good that you are not letting the wood that was in the way go to waste, what ever it is.  I have no idea.

No on the Aussie pine, but your logic trail is good............... :)
I cannot believe that with the numbers of these trees around that no one has developed a market for it yet.
Several years ago I started looking at Ca. orchard walnut for uses other than gun-stocks and those markets have REALLY taken off for me.I hope this "trash" wood will do the same. Cheers WOC

Bingo,,,,,Tamarisk or Tamarix - a non native tree also known as salt cedar. Let's see what we can do with it.

Regarding Yellow Birch, I have seen some huge ones in the Adirondack Forest Preserve and the bark on those very mature trees is much different than on younger trees.
