Kind of looks like Magnolia to me, but it’s kind of hard to tell without actually seeing the leaves in person. Do they have a particular smell?

It looks like a compound leaf. The central stem is called a rachis and it has multiple leaflets. At least that is what it appears to be from the photo. If this is the case, then this is one leaf, and it is ash.

I’d vote for some kind of hickory. Ash leaves are typically pointier and a bit more saw toothed than hickory. Just my opinion, HTH.

My experience is exactly opposite of that. Hickory is more evenly serrated down here, but that could vary with species of hickory and area of the country. However, ash is opposite branched and hickory is alternate branched, so it is easy to tell them apart if you have leaves.
