    Sycamore maybe, if it is hard as hell to split and has a twisted grain then yup.

    Lol. Not exactly sure, But it flowers like a cherry tree, and smells nice when it burns. Just doesn't produce fruit. All the old timers around my area call them swamp cherry trees. They grow well in very wet areas with wet soils.
    Wood inside is reddish in color and has no straight grain. Wood is pretty hard. Bark is flaky and scaly like.
    Not exactly sure of the "real" name of the tree.
    They also have leaves that are common with the Cherry Tree.

    The black cherry trees here make cherries, They're just really small. I didn't think they did myself till one blew over in a storm and I happened to see them while brushing it out.
