Looks like the actual wood is wet, but from what I can see of the bark, ash maybe??? I see you're from Pittsburgh. I'm about an hour north of there and we have a lot of it dying off around us...

Can't tell from the photo. Can you give us a shot of the bark? Also, any context you can give might be helpful - especially the location and setting where the tree grew. Leaves would be most helpful, but I assume you don't have those since the wood looks like it has been cut long enough to start drying out.

I don't think it's ash. The wood looks way too dark for ash. I almost want to call it black walnut, but I can't say that with any degree of certainty based on the photo.

If you don't get any satisfactory responses, you can always try your local county extension office.

Walnut? It does look damp but the split shows it's dark through.
Keep throwin' money at it, it'll get better.

Growth rings look too big for walnut but otherwise that would be my guess.
