Description:

Tree growing in school yard with hawthorns and apples. Acer of some description, just cant pin it down. Leaves are tough and leathery. Nice red/pink stalks. Bottom two lobes fairly pronounced on some leaves, almost missing on others. Young tree, bark almost reminiscent of Acer platanoides but not quite.
