It could be mulberry. The way to tell is to look at a clean slice (like with a razor blade) of the end grain. Some of the earlywood pores (the largest pores that form in the Spring) will be open. In osage, all the earlywood pores will be totally plugged with a whitish crystalline substance called tyloses.

There is a science to this.
