Looks like maple to me. The slight green made me hesitate (poplar?), but that could be the camera adding its two cents worth.

Thanks and there is a slight green tinge to parts of it but it is just too dense to be poplar (IMO), I was thinking maple as well, but wanted expert opinions.

Being green I’d think Poplar, but, it does look like Maple as well. Here is a link that might help you determine it:
