One of two street trees planted by our township when our neighborhood was first built, I think this is a red maple. Certainly the spring flowers, which appear before the leaf buds open, are red, and so is the fall foliage. Not the fastest-growing maple, but doing nicely in our front yard.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
