Can you post closer photos of the leaves laid out flat and the trunk?

It is difficult to tell from the photos and I agree that a close up of a leaf and bark will help. My eyesight isn't good at all so a wild guess would be Sweet Gum (Liquidambar styraciflua) but it could be a lot of things. Green Grin!

Maybe Acer platanoides

If leaves are opposite on a branch then probably Acer sp.
I tried to zoom in...they appear to be opposite.

Maybe Acer macrophyllum...very large leaves...with long stalks.

Quote wiki "has the largest leaves of any maple, typically 15–30 cm (5.9–11.8 in) across, with five deeply incised palmate lobes, with the largest running to 61 centimetres (24 in)."
Larger than Acer platanoides

Liquidambar styraciflua leaves are alternate on a branch.
