Hello. New to the forum and eager to share. Hoping someone can tell me what this tree is. Looked like some kind of oak to me but it is very very light wood and not so tight gained. Hello would be much appreciated

Looks like ash to me.

Thank you. I thought it might be ash but the bark had the very strait runs in it, and not much diamond pattern in it at all, and I’m a rookie to tree ID, so it was throwing me off

Challenging and often unreliable to identify a tree from the bark, leaves are preferred. Looks like it has a lot of twist which means a lot of warping.
