My neighbor gave me a little tree & didn't know what type it was. I am thinking it maybe a Sweetgum but by looking at pictures the leaves have noticeable differences. Any help anyone can give would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance :)

Do you have a size reference of any kind?

At first look I'd say it looks like a maple, tho I can tell you it's not hedge maple, Japanese maple, or Amur maple.

Anyone else?

Thanks for the reply. I should have put some measurement in there for the leaf, sorry about that. Here is another picture.

I'd say sweetgum, too. There is some variation in sweetgum leaves, but not a lot. It would really, really help to see:

1. A picture of the leaf WITH its petiole (stem) attached.
2. A picture of the tree -- and if it is an older tree, its bark.
