Certainly hard to tell, but I am thinking ash.

Danny, Ash is want I was wondering.  You had explained to me a while back about the bark....I think making a X pattern (something like that).  
The owner said oak but I just wasnt sure.

I am leaning much harder on ash than oak.  Most oaks do not exhibit the interlacing ridges like you see on ash and hickory.

I dont have any experience with ash.. But the wire meshed blocky bark and the moldy staining pattern both lean toward hickory for me.

The wood looks like ash. If it is ash I think the boards will fall apart if hit with a hammer.

Bark characteristics are always a crap shoot but based on the wood pics I'd think hickory. Wouldn't be surprised at all if it was ash either. Insufficient evidence except that the wood is beyond even good fire wood I think.

This wood is ring porous.  Willow is diffuse porous.

Bark wise it doesn't resemble any of the many types of hickory near me. 
To say it's firewood- is the wood punky or only just spalted, which doesn't make it firewood by itself.

I am pretty certain that it is ash from the bark backed up by the ring structure.  If we could only see the late wood parenchyma we would know   ;D.
