    I believe poster #2 got it correct, based on just the leaves. You got a pic of the tree?

    The wild cherry leaves alternate up the stem while the pecan leaves grow directly opposite each other up the stem, like Troy’s picture.








    According to the google, anyway.

    Pretty long leaves to be a pecan in my opinion. I'm anxious to see what it is once we determine.

    Also, pecans are "blooming" right now. There would be tendrils of seeds attached to the stem.

    @fieldgrade beat me to it on the alternating leaves for the cherry but I don't think its a pecan, pecans have serrated leaves don't they?

    I'll grab one of our tree ID books and see what I can find.

    @kcult do you have a pic of the trunk/bark?

    Same family as pecan. I'm pretty sure it's hickory.

    This tree is in the location that a huge black walnut tree used to be. Loggers cut the black walnut down when they harvested the pines a couple of years ago.

    This tree was close to a fallen sharecropper house. I guess that's why it was spared. But not from the storm.

    Coincidently, there is a cherry tree a few yards away, but it survived the storm.

    Looks like a hickory of some sort to me as well but I'm still thumbing around in the book.

    Cut it up, stack it and save it for cooking.

    If you plan to cut it up for firewood and it’s not pecan that’s a good thing. We lost some of a pecan tree at the old farm during hurricane Fran. I cut it up and loaded as much as I could to bring it home to split.
    So, I’ve split pecan once.

    There won’t be a second time. Ever.

    @Brangus gave me some pecan wood from back when one of the hurricanes downed some of his trees. I use it for smoking and grilling. I even brought some to Texas with me. Here are a couple of pieces of NC pecan adding some flavor to the ribs I did last week.

    That might be the one species we don't have one this property. But there are several on the property next door and I did get a bed full of one that fell and the owner cut up.

    I did that with some sweet gum once. Free firewood that wasn't worth the price...

    I put my neatly cut, unsplit logs out on the street for yard waste pick-up in Cary, back when you could do that, and they were gone in an hour to some unsuspecting neighbor.

    I tried that once-

    Pecan is easy in comparison.

    Not enough leaves for walnut. Leaves too big for pecan. I’m
    Leaning some sort of hickory too.

    Yep, White Ash.

    I was positive it was hickory. Won't be the last time I'm wrong. Lol
