Any idea what this wood is?

The bark is definitely similar to the pecan. That could be it

It is definitely not pine. There's not a single knot in any of the wood pieces. I've also cracked some of it open with a hatchet and smelled it. No pine scent whatsoever.

If not pecan, does anyone think this could be mulberry? I put this bark into a tree identifying app, and it suggested mulberry. After having looked up some pictures of fresh cut mulberry on the net, the wood looks very similar, as does the bark.

Alright, fellas. Getting real close to calling this mulberry.

Turns yellow when wet. There is zero rot on any piece. Bark matches. Very dense yet light weight wood, and light in color when dry.

Still waiting for TAMU to get back with me, but after 2 days of research, I think I've got it.

Damn, the Oilfield needs to pick up. 2 days researching wood chunks. 😂

I’m not an expert in wood and deffinetly can’t tell by color. This is healthy pecan that’s been drying for 1.5 years out of the elements

Don’t know about the bark but the bark less pieces look like poplar. It often gets those dark streaks. Is any of it light green towards the center?
