Need a close up of end grain. The cleaner the cut the better.

No I know a guy that owns a tree service and he gave me the wood for free. He told me it may be a beech tree?

And a quarter sawn area.

it doesn’t really look like beech. Especially at the edges where it’s rift/quarter sawn. Should be able to see the ray flecking. The pores of the rings looks bigger than beech species I’ve seen as well.

Looks similar to an elm species from here. My two cents

Need better pictures, for sure. But based on that picture I could not rule out Elm or Mulberry

TheFridge got it. It is an elm. You can see the wavy bands in the latewood in the 2nd pic posted.
