Topic tags/keywords: identification tree

A beaver took down this tree. I’m curious what kind of tree it might be so I can decide if I want to mill it up. It’s from the metro area of Minnesota. It’s during the winter i Don’t know what the leaves look like. There is leaf buds which I thought was weird because it’s February. The bark on the higher up branches looks light gray.

Without pictures this is almost impossible to identify but I’ll take a stab at it. Growing along a river, downed by a beaver: how about Cotton wood or a Plane tree (Platanus)?

Sorry it wasn’t letting me upload images. I was hoping it was an oak! The bark looks like it could be cottonwood.

Based on the bark, buds, location and wood color, I would say that the beaver cut down a Cottonwood.
