Looks like hickory to me.  Not Elm.  Not familiar with Ironwood.

Where you located?  It's not in your profile.
Lucas 6-13, a blue cant hook, a few orange chainsaws, and a bunch of trees.

Don't know about other places, but around here, ironwood is blue beech and looks like muscles.

That looks like shagbark hickory to me.

Definitely not hophornbeam   I am in the leaning towards hickory by the bark but I don't get to see much elm.  The end grains don't look much like hickory here but then again I have never seen a tree that far north. Danny will be by soon enough, I am just not sure


Thanks

Buck

Yes, it is shagbark hickory.  I love that beautiful heartwood color.
