Need some help identifying this tree I started milling - a huge log at 38" diameter. Tree was in Shelby, NC and the log sat on the ground for 3+ years and it's got little decay, so good rot resistance. Some kind of cedar perhaps?

My first thought is cherry.
Woodmizer LT40HDD35, John Deere 2155, Kubota M5-111, Nyle L53 Dehumidification Kiln, and a passion for all things with leafs, twigs, and bark.

The color and rot streak looks like sassafras .  But then there is catalpa .
