Here is a tree that I have seen many times. But I do not know what kind it is. Please help identify it.

White Ash. The leaves on some trees are more round in appearance. They look a little sharper here.

Thank you, I thought that it might be some kind of Ash, but I don't know enough about them.

...And I always thought it was some kind of hickory!

That would have been another guess, Mockernut Hickory. Looks like a large tree.

This is definitely not an Ash. Ash trees have opposite leaves, and the leaves on this tree are alternate. I think it is a Bitternut Hickory.

Definitely not an ash. Hickory for sure, Bitternut cannot be confused with anything else. Get a bud.

Definitely hickory. You can see its flowers in the third photo.

Thank you for the answers. But now I am confused, a lot of different answers. Can someone say exactly what it is for sure.

I just thought of something else. If it is a hickory tree, then there would be Hickory nuts on the ground later in the season. I don't remember ever noticing nuts on the ground.
