    I would have to agreee. Sometimes they are more deeply lobed or appear to have more like 5 lobes instead of 3.

    I thought about leaving this one for you, Quercus, but I got impatient.

    RE: Please help me identify this tree.

    For the splitters like me this tree is known as the Carolina or Trident Red Maple (Acer rubrum var. trilobum). And is recognized as such on the National Plants Database website. In my area this tree is more common in the lowlands or flatwoods as they are called locally, and Acer rubrum var. rubrum is more common on the mountains and hills. See the following link for good pictures.
