    These leaves do look like sweet gum as Jim suggested. Could you make new post with close-up view photos of the trunk and branches? According to sources sweet gum trees will be mature enough to produce flowers & fruits after the first 12 to 20 years. Photo of the trunk might help rule out sweet gum (Liquidambar styraciflua) so we could suggest another candidate. Link below can help further.

    Jim, you mentioned it could be a sweet gum tree. A sweet gum produces a hard spiked fruit. This tree doesn’t have those.

    A good possibility is sweetgum, although the leaves seem a little large for that – but sometimes young trees have larger leaves.
