    It is an Elm. I got a few on my farm that way. Go to GOOGLE and they have some food pictures just like the one shown on here. Go to where it shows the picture images click on a picture and it will bring you hundreds up to look at.

    I’m not doubting. Just trying to learn. The remaining bark looks like ash to me. I tried to google images of ash and elm bark and in many cases I can’t tell the difference.

    My daughters boyfriend found it. I am going to go back there and hang a camera by it. There is bark and hunks of wood laying all over the ground by the tree.

    Kinda looks like an ash, there's a lot of ash trees dying out around here. Some kind of blight or insect killing them out.

    If it is an Elm, go back about late March early April and pick up all the mushrooms that grow. The yellow variety of morels (dryland fish some may call them) tend to grow from the fungus that is spread by the debarking of those trees. At least that's what my experience has taught me. It does look more like an ash borer has got to the tree though so my vote is ash.
