    CORRECTION: leaves of this tree are ALTERNATE not opposite. (Acer species have opposite leaves) Could this be Firmiana simplex, Chinese Parasol Tree?

    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?

    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?
