This is a really great tree. Has some mistletoe and I will be hanging a tree swing from it. I hope this tree lasts my lifetime. Thanks again for your help1

Perhaps black cottonwood? Black Cottonwood (Populus balsamifera subsp. trichocarpa)

Does this produce 'cotton' in the spring that blows all over your yard? That would be a tell-tale sign.

Not a Black Cottonwood. But maybe an Ash Tree.

I wouldn't hang anything from that branch that goes sideways, especially if it is an Ash. Also, Ash trees are not multi-stemmed trees. I would figure out why that tree is before getting too far on your project.

I think it is an Ash tree also, maybe a Green Ash. Smiling

I agree with ash. Perhaps it is not a multi-stemmed tree but rather several trees growing together.

I agree it may be Fraxinus sp.

Please can you look carefully in the tree and on the ground under the tree for any evidence of seed./fruits.
Next year add clear pics of the buds and flowers for an accurate id.
It is hard to be accurate in the fall/ autumn when trees are losing their leaves.

Thank you SilverSurfer! I have been looking at various trees/leaves on the WWW and was having a heck of a time so thank you for your counsel and we will sit this one out until spring. I will look again, but I have not noticed any seeds/fruits.
Thank you for your help, I really appreciate it!
