What kind of tree?

I can't quite tell how high those ridges on the bark are,it could be eastern cottonwood if they are really pronounced.

Here's a closeup pic of the bark.  Either way, it's not desirable, so over the bank it goes.

Woodworkers call that “flame” box elder. They make beautiful bowls and turkey calls. It’s a softer hardwood and often grows in riparian areas along rivers and streams. It stump sprouts if a flood flow shears it off or if a beaver fells it. We have a box elder beetle that has greatly weakened them and that is what puts that red “flame” into them. Here’s the best I’ve found to date on a 1.5 mile river channel, bank and floodplain project we did in VA.

This one wasn't nowhere near as vivid.

If it’s Box elder the buds and branches will be arranged opposite as opposed to alternate.   Do you have pics of the branches?   

Just noticed your question.  Unfortunately I dumped them over the bank already.

I vote boxelder as well. Junk firewood.  I have "trees" on my property that have grown to 30' tall and cut down  to the stump at least 3 times in my lifetime..lol

Oh and @Rusty, you want to borrow my old wood splitter ? I could split 2 full cord an hr with it..
