A Gorgeous Old Tree

A few days ago, I posted a photo of this massive tree trunk because I thought it was interesting and beautiful. Several of you asked what kind of tree it is and asked me to post a picture of the entire tree. As you can see, it is so large I could barely get the whole tree in the picture. I've posted a close-up of the leaves, too. You can click on the photo for a better look. I don't know what kind of tree it is, so if you do, please let me know.
It is a beauty, isn't it?

Looks like an Ash tree, not a mountain ash but in that family. We have a similar on in our yard and if it grows that big we will have to move LOL.

Wow it is massive, wonder how old it is? Still don't have a clue as to what it is but it is gorgeous.

She sure is beautiful whatever she is....I am not good with trees. If it isn't a maple or a weeping willow I am lost....LOL!!

What kind of tree is it? Why, it's an enormous tree! That trunk is intriguing and fascinating. Wow, it must be very, very old.

Oh, dear Audrey. As I scrolled down to catch up, I noticed all the vigil candles on your sidebar. How devastating, all those losses. Even one is too much.

Hugs to you.
