Can anyone help me to identify this type of wood? It came from a greenwaste dump in NE Oklahoma. It is extremely hard and has little divets in the side. It also has what appears to be beetle damage which can be seen in the first picture. I encountered a number of larvae while removing the bark. It also has a nice smell to it as I sand it, but not a smell like cedar. Thanks.

I would guess some type of elm that had died standing.

If it has a camphor (i.e. Ben Gay) smell, it might be Eucalyptus. The last two pics look like a different species.

I was thinking elm, when I first saw it.

Just a guess, but my first thought was black hickory (Carya texana).

The top one looks like red elm and the bottom looks like bur oak.
