Hello there,
Do you know the name of the tree in the attached pic? I saw it at a zoo the other day and want to get one in my backyard. Thank you!

Did you take some closeups of the leaves? My best guess issome sort of maple tree but, from this distance, it could be almost anything.

Agree. Looks like some type of Maple tree. You might take a look at our Plants Database.
You should see a tab at the top of the screen that says 'Plants Database'. Click on it or pull down the arrow. I did a very generic search by supplying the word 'maple'. Of course this got me to 51 screens worth of maple trees. But take a look at a few and compare to the tree that you saw. I guarantee it won't be easy to make an exact match.
Plus we might be wrong about it being a maple.

Maybe you can get the name of the tree from the zoo where you saw it.
