    The one branch I see doesn't look like an evergreen tree, so I stand by my Maple guess.

    That dark heartwood is a maple characteristic for sure. The bark looks a bit smooth for a hard maple of that size and a little rough for a soft maple, but I’m from Vermont and don’t know much about trees out west. For that reason, I’m out.

    I got a chance to go cut with him today, after getting to look at the tree, it’s hackberry.

    I thought hackberry at first glance, but the bark on the one piece didn't look right.

    I'm liking hackberry better. There is a variety of bark variations on hackberry.
