About 2 years ago and enormous tree was cut down by the road in front of my home. Several shoots started growing off of the 4' diameter trunk that was left behind. The leaves are huge and look kind of like Maple Leaves I think. Much to my delight, I found a shoot growing in my yard that I feel fairly certain is the same tree. I want to dig it up and relocate it because of power lines but need first to know what it is and how to care for it. Can someone help? Thank you
P.s. I think I may need another picture to show the position of the leaves? My phone is charging and I will get more pictures if needed this afternoon. Thank you

Looks like it might be a Platanus occidentalis, Sycamore tree.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
