I recently cut down a few trees in Oklahoma City and milled these on my bandsaw. Can anyone help me identify the species?

If it is as yellow as the pics indicate , it is either Hedgeapple, also called Osage Orange, Bois de Arc, or hedge (very hard and heavy) or mulberry. I have cut both in my part of Oklahoma.

I’m leaning towards hedge as it usually has more knots, cracks, and inclusions than mulberry. If you ever get any bigger logs bring them to Jenks and we’ll slice them on my WoodMizer!
