Here are a couple more close ups of the grain and bark, hopefully this helps. The leaves you see in the picture were from trees that were closer to the road, not this one.

The pictures I checked for oak and yellow poplar had rougher bark than that plus the white oak seemed slightly darker. You may need to slice some off and do like Dan suggested. Also, taking a piece and cutting iut into a rectangle then measuring dimensions and weighing it would give specific gravity which could help too.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Doesn't it have to be dried first for specific gravity? Same for hardness?

Thanks for the updated pics, Tank, but I think you'l need to do something like scraping the end grain to actually make it visible. Yeh, I know; picky picky...

Looks like Silky Oak or Queensland Maple as it's also called,but probably not grown over there.

You can't drive a bridge spike with a tack hammer(so I'm told)

I appreciate all the input! I will try to cut a chunk out, and scrape the grain to get a better visual. Thanks again!
Updates to come!

Youy can dry it in a microwave. There are probably youtube videos on doing it.
