It looks like Eastern Cottonwood to me that would be native to your area https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Populus_sect._Aigeiros Not much heat value.

I hate cottonwood, it is taking over the world, that one is prettier in the fall than the Western model, but when springtime comes they are like a snow storm and every seed grows even it it lands on concrete.
Just saying,
Herb

From your middle picture of the bark, I think your trees are sycamores.

If the area is damp or wet, the bark in the second picture make me think of a young sycamore...

I believe you are spot on with sycamore after seeing that green bark. The leaves would look like this

Crape Myrtle
A friend gave me some branches he pruned, that look identical to those posted.
I found out they are used to make Christmas ornaments due to the brilliant white color.
I cut several to turning length, and chucked one up to turn.
Turned down about a 3" dia smooth, and next day was split to center the full length 14"long.
I looked at the pile of other pieces, and all were split. Oh well....
I assume there is a way to dry it, but these splits occurred after just a couple of days drying.
Had no idea of accelerated drying out, and was disappointed.
All those projects I had planed.
Back to the oak/hickory logs.
