|This fast growing deciduous tree has defied attempts at ID. In its third year, it is over 12' tall. The leaves are sandpapery on top and the largest are about dinner plate size. It has not flowered.
I don't think it is Paulownia Tomentosa, as there is only one leaf node at any location and the nodes are about 120 degrees apart. Also do not think it is a ficus carica, as the leaves are not as deeply scalloped.
In answer to posts, there was no milky sap when I cut off the leaf. I have added another picture of the tree in its first year, when it was already over 3' high.

It looks like a fig to me. Not all have those deeply cut leaves.

|Ficus species have white (latex) sap. Adding a pic of the whole plant could help with recognition.
