I agree most likely pine, maybe spruce almost certain it's a softwood. Seeing the top even if dead helps.

I agree with the pine identification.  I've got several specimens of long needle pines in my yard with trunks that size.  I would hate to have to take them out.  Looks like you will need to remove that one, and you have my sympathy.

Take a look around on the ground, you may be able to photograph cones or shed needles.

Ok. Well I apologize in advance if this gets posted twice. I typed everything and it disappeared. Still trying to figure this out. Apparently it doesn’t care for my grammar either.

Thank you all for your input. Pine was what I was leaning toward, but as many of you stated- no leaves or needles to confirm.  I didn’t want to risk being wrong.

This poor specimen came from a nature trail close to me. They allow me to collect downed branches, bark and leaves for my reptile enclosures. They don’t use any chemicals on the grounds so it’s the safest place to get things from.

Unfortunately conifers are toxic to most exotic animals so I’ll have to toss it. What a waste. I don’t come across big sheets of bark very often.

A lot of people cry when they cut onions. The trick is not to form an emotional bond. This tiny ad told me:
