    There is a maple that looks a lot like this. Does it have spectacular fall color (mostly red) and feather like seeds in the spring?

    It’s always best to take a picture of the leaves on the plant… Picking a leaf or a flower to photograph against a neutral background is the kind of thing we do when we’re trying to stump people.

    I’m pretty sure that you’ve posted a limb from a fig tree.

    Fig newtons anyone?

    CORRECTION: leaves of this tree are ALTERNATE not opposite. (Acer species have opposite leaves)

    Could this be Firmiana simplex,
    Chinese Parasol Tree?
