A roadside tree seen in New Jersey in June,17.
Seems to be Acer Species.
Experts kindly help in id.

looking at the leaves it is Acer macrophyllum. But other features need to be checked before confirmation. I have come across this tree when I was in Princeton 

Thanks for suggesting the id.
I too have seen similar trees during my visit to Atlanta.
do you have bark pictures? whole tree? and any fallen leaves foto
Unfortunately, these are the only pictures I have.
Yes, Acer macrophyllum is possible as suggested by … as per Wikipedia   USDA  Calscape  Calflora  UFEI  Tree Guide
To me it appears more closer to Acer saccharinum as per images and references herein.

We must look for details/clues in the 3 images offered. The leaf shape is good for Sugar Maple aka A. saccharum; I have circled what appears to be the samara which looks the correct shape for A. saccharum. Some also call it a Rock Maple or Hard Maple when referring to the wood/lumber from this tree.
Can you remember the size of the leaves?
If the leaves are large we can be looking at A. macrophyllum the samara is a similar shape to A. saccharum. If the leaves are small then we look elsewhere. 
As far as I can remember, the leaves were not very large but medium. The leaves were high up and I could take these pictures with a zoom. Tree itself was not very tall.
This was by the roadside, so we could halt only briefly. Hope this helps.
