This 20-40' tree is one of the easiest of the maple species to identify because its leaves, with their parallel veining ; toothing, though opposite, don't look maple-ish at all, but like those of a hornbeam, instead! Sun-PSh/Med

A great stump the botanist plant, almost no one recognizes this as a maple, the leaves are perfect hornbeam replicas, however the spinner seeds are a dead giveaway. The evolutionary advantage of mimicking a Carpinus eludes me; sinister selective pressures may be at work here.
