I think it's a poplar tree, very fast growing, light wood, often used for matches, very often has a white saprophytic tea color mushroom growing on the tree stumps. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclocybe_aegerita

The description is missing bark photos and leaf anatomy photos. It can also be a birch or a willow, very difficult to ID from just that photo.

    $\begingroup$ Are you sure it isn't quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides), which is in the Poplar family, but called aspens in North America. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ He can tell by comparing the bark which is a lot whiter on tremuloides. $\endgroup$ Jun 26, 2022 at 19:43
