Looks like spotted maple. Finally I’m in a guess the wood thread before the “hurr hurr Alder hur hur.”

Either way wear a mask when working with it since it’s spalted.

Looks like alder. But it could also be spalted elm. Need closer and clearer pics of grain.

Did the tree look like this before it went down? If so, Douglas Fir. 100%.
