Here is a good site:

It's pretty easy to understand once you get the gist of it. Study this method along with the differences in bark and you should be ok.

No problem. I had the same issues telling young trees apart. When trees are young their bark isn't as exaggerated and deeply grooved as mature trees so its hard to tell some of them apart. This helped me ID a few different species from each other. Mainly Poplar vs Ash, and maples vs other trees. We have a high population of a Box Elder (Acer Negundo) around here and I was confusing them for Elm, Ash, and Poplar. With madhorse I was able to rule out Elm and Poplar since they are alternate branching, so all I had to do was decide if it was Ash or not.
