Anyone know what this tree..thing is?

I believe it's a native plant, and only grows in partial to full shade which makes it perfect for the edges of my property. It can get pretty big and has a weeping growth habit. The leaves are very large:

It's a Maple leaf Viburnum (Viburnum acerifolium)

Hmmm...none of mine get flowers or fruits, but you've answered another question I had about a shrub growing on the edge of the woods here. That is definitely a Viburnum, so thank you!

It is a Maple , not a Viburnum . Acer pensylvanicum . They are a snakebark maple, you can see the snakebark in the second photo.
