The second picture looks like a Sycamore, as does the bark of the first whose leaves are harder to distinguish.

*Blush* D'Oh! It is Platanus species! I don't think American Sycamore (Platanus occidentalis) grows out west so I'm thinking that it's probably California Sycamore (Platanus racemosa)

If it was UK I would say Platanus x acerifolia.
The seed balls.
The bark.

Liquidambar styracilua seed balls by now should look like this.

I figured they just weren't mature yet, but you're probably right.

100% way to check.
Liquidambar...... leaves are alternate.
Acer ...................leaves are opposite.
