Question

What type of Tree?

Can anybody tell me what type of tree this is?

I've photographed it many times over the past few years, and have enjoyed seeing how it changes from season to season.

Sycamore or Maple

"Thanks for your comments, Ian.   I went to the tree again yesterday and had a close look at it for the first time.

You are right; it is certainly an Acer, but I'm not sure whether it's a Sycamore or a Maple.  I'll investigate further, then update this page again.

Thank you to Gordon Rankin who replied:

Maple

"Your tree is a Sugar Maple or a Red Maple.

That's without seeing the leaves and seeds. 

I'll have a look at it soon."
