A tree fell in the back yard I cut the bottom off carved this bowl. Can someone tell this wood type?

Thank You Lumberjocks

The best type of wood there is. FREE WOOD! But it looks like ash to me to.

Hard to tell from just a picture like this, and no other information…... but like the others, Ash is a good bet.

Hard to tell without any more description. Is it really soft? Hard? Does it have a smell? Do you know what the leaves or bark looks like?

Give us a little more…

Without any of that, I’d hazard a guess that it’s Ash also. But my first thought was Catalpa. But it’s got a really distinctive smell, and it’s a LOT softer than Ash- not to mention long beans hanging on the tree that you really couldn’t miss.

My knowledge really is poor. But couldn’t it be birch too?
