Hello and thank you for choosing Ask An Expert.

The picture you provided is showing an immature plant so id is a bit difficult, but I have checked it and also conferred with professionals in the area of plant id and the tree that you have here is most likely Acer rubrum, the red maple, also known as swamp, water or soft maple.

Hope this helps!!
