But it does not look like L. versipelle. Could be some better more rare species.
No chance to say it by picture.

Here it’s mostly Larch – Latix decidua, Holly – Ilex aquifolium, Some Birch – B. pubescens and a Beech Fagus sylvatica. I’m familiar with B. versicolour, must have overlooked this time.

Also helpful would be a picture of the cut context or the color changes at and in the stipe base.
