These fotos are taken of new growth coming from around an old stump that was cut off near ground level. The stump measures 14 inches across, while the largest of the new growth has a 5 inch diameter and a height of 20-30 feet. The bark of the new growth is light brown in color with a slight orangish tint, and is relatively smooth. Some of the leaves appear to have 3 lobes or clefts while others appear to be “un-lobed.” All the leaves, irregardless of their shape, have serrated edges.
This tree is found in Omaha, NE (320 masl). I assume it is a native tree as most here are.
As shown in the last foto, this is the same tree from spotting https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/25.... I am trying to determine what the host tree is for the Fall Webworms in our yard. The variation in leaf shape really has me stumped. Thanks for any help
