Tree identification is not easy, when young, without all parts of a plant, although, this specimen could be a mulberry, Morus alba. There are many species, the common one shown in this link is White Mulberry

Also, the native mulberry Morus rubra young leaves are variable

In North America, white mulberry hybridizes with the native red mulberry (M. rubra), and Numerous white mulberry cultivars occur in North America...

Hope this is helpful.

It was. Thank you for your time :)
