Here are some more pics. I ran it thru the bandsaw and it burned it smoked a little. Then I used my table saw smoked but did not leave burn marks. Then the last two are after a few passes thru the planer.

Jeff, that bark does seem the same. I am in Texas in the dfw area. Garland texas actually is where it came from no leaves. Been a couple weeks since it was cut down.

You know the bark says oak. But the wood looks like brown maple? Humm i need to go back to school. Lol the best way to tell is by a leaf. Sorry im not helping but tried.
