Hello all. First post so I hope I’m doing this right. Anyway I found these large rounds at a neighbors house the other day and I’m wondering what kind of tree this is.. the biggest rounds in there are 32 inches in diameter! If anyone has a clue I would appreciate it.

Without leaves or closeup of wood grain it’s tough to make a guess. Bark could be an oak of some kind?

Too bad they cut less than 9’. You could have made some nice lumber out of the tree.

If it is elm, the latewood pores will be arranged in distinct wavy bands.

If it is there, you will see it easily.
