I currently cut down this tree in Pennsylvania - December 18th.
No leaves on it to ID.

Does anyone happen to know what it is?

hi Jason,

I can't find my tree book right now
and like the buds, my mind is a little fuzzy

but I would guess it is a cottonwood popular or other popular
check the buds with this article

good luck

I'm in PA (ChesCo) I'm thinking tulip poplar. Have you seen it in other seasons?

Looking at the bark and the wood, I'd guess its a maple. But the fuzzies on the buds, I'm unsure of. We used to burn poplar in Ontario but nothing I see triggers a memory.

Red maples have a red bud that could be described as fuzzy. It's a little early in December for buds tho???
