Title says it all really! Anyone help?
It looks like a bit like a fig. Can you see any tiny fruit where the leaves meet the stems?
IT LOOKS A BIT LIKE A FIELD MAPLE TO ME.
No fruit when Ive looked Hostafan -
pansyface- leaves do look very similar!
I would agree.Acer campestre..field maple.
the leaves looked more deeply lobed , but maybe it's just the photo, or my imagination.
I'm happy to be proved wrong though.
Field maple becomes a very big tree pretty quickly. I'd be wary of one anywhere near my house.
I'M NOT CERTAIN, JUST A GUESS.
IF IT IS ONE, I HOPE YOU DIDN'T PAY A LOT FOR IT. THEY ARE VERY FREE WITH THEIR SEEDLINGS AND YOU WILL SOON HAVE A SMALL FOREST.

The fissured bark on your tree is very similar to my Liquidambar styraciflua ; your tree is very possibly L.styraciflua 'Rotundifolia' ; does it show good autumn colouration ? The crushed foliage sometimes smells like turpentine . Hope that I'm correct . (They are known as Sweet Gums in their native U.S.A. ).
Take good care of it !
A large-leaved form of Acer campestre (field-maple) cannot be ruled out .
Notyalca please can you add a clear close up of a twig with leaves.
I studied the pic and believe the leaves to be opposite.
Acer have opposite leaves.
Liquidambar have alternate leaves.
P.S As the tree ages Acer campestre also develops corky bark.
