Got a great deal on a mature Maple tree but was sold as box elder.. can't be, right? Anyone able to ID this maple species for me? Can't find a specific match but looks closest to sugar maple variety of some sort. Thanks in advance!

Welcome!

Sugar Maple is close, but Norway Maple (Acer platanoides) looks spot on.
