My husband is clearing parts of our land that have not been touched in 30 years or more, and we came across a tree I did not recognize. Can someone help ID it?

I think that is one of your native Birch species (Betula sp.), possibly Gray Birch - Betula populifolia.

I don't get to interact with many birches except River Birch, which that distinctly is NOT.
