Someone gave me a tree last year and I am now suspect this is not a fruit tree as we were told (and hoping for).
It is about 6' tall at this point. Thinking it is some type of Maple. If so, or any other larger variety, it will have to move, it is 10-15' from my house.
Any insight is greatly appreciated.

|You are correct - this is not a fruit tree.
You are correct again - it is a species of Maple.
Acer rubrum - Red Maple - is a common native tree in eastern North America which will be quite happy to grow to a large and old age in IN (or even Indina).
Plant it farther from your house, or donate it to someone who has more room for it to mature.

That is what I was thinking. We are going to donate to a friend looking for a larger tree.
Thanks and have a great day.
