TREE ID

I need some help with an ID for a tree.
My online reserach came up empty - and since the tree has lost its leaves, that is one less clue for me.

Here are the pics:

Re: TREE ID

Picture of the bark would really help, but everything else looks like sycamore.

The sleep of a laborer is sweet, while the rich man tosses and turns, worried about his possessions.

Re: TREE ID

Thanks - you two gents nailed it.

I missed it the first time looked through the reference guide I used.




This tree is located on a bank of the upper Lehigh River.
It is the only one I saw in the general area - so the seeds traveled somehow - either with the wind or attached to a critter.

Thanks for you insight & knowledge.
