I have some free wood. I'm not sure what kind it is. Can ya'll help identify it?

Here are 3 sample cuts.



Any help would (no pun intended) be appreciated.

It's really hard to tell without looking at some leaves and branches. My first reaction was that the middle sample was pine but there are some persimmons with that bark pattern.

Are all these cuts from the same tree?

Thanks for the quick reply.

No they are from 3 different trees.

Sorry they were all ready downed and limbed.

Ok, don't go to the bank on this because I'm just comparing pictures Here's a link to tree bark identification for Virginia

Top Sample: Red Maple


Middle sample: Persimmon


Bottom Sample: Shumard Oak (I'm kind of iffy on this one)

the top bark looks like it may be a maple variety, but without seeing the grain, the color of the heartwood, knowing what part of the country it grew in, it makes it near impossible to be sure,

Leaves are a huge help as Mike already mentioned.

Where are you at in this world? And the trees grew where?
