Could be Acer palmatum ?

Thanks … To me it looks different.

Could be Acer platanoides?

The Norway Maple Tree?

when you dont know the tree you should include the trunk…surface bark, branches … their surface leaves …. shape size and edges of the leaves and in case of maples, the axillary buds.
do you have those pictures?

These pictures were taken when my friend was driving me to her house.
Couldn’t stop that long on a road to get the details. From far, it looked as if the tree had dried up. Sorry.

Acer rubrum L. ??

Thanks for the suggestion. I will check further.

Thanks. All these trees are new to me.
Only someone from that region can help to know the correct id.

science is science. given correct data…. distant diagnosis of the rarest diseases in humans is accomplished everyday in this world.
there are at least 100 maples, takes a lifetime to be an expert.
yet, give a botanist , any botanist  correct data like at least one leaf in complete profile, and a good bark picture, a reasonable diagnosis could possibly be made…. read these sites
and may be you will become your own expert

(Please forgive that I have used copy/paste to make this message – today I am very tired.)
When we say that a particular plant does not ‘occur’ in any given location, we are talking about a natural occurrence. There are several Norway Maples that have been planted in Georgia. There are different hybrids such 
as:  Acer platanoides ‘Crimson King”, A. patanoides ‘Maltese Cross’, A. patanoides ‘Novusch‘, ‘Paldiski’, ‘Rezek’, ‘Walderseel”. there may be others but that’s as far as I have researched. And I agree that we need more information such as the bark/trunk, front and back of the leaves, fruits/seed pods, etc. We can only offer guesses when given a small amount of information. 

see the invasive species link above, they have a map with distribution//occurrence in usa and Canada

oh i forgot to ask. where is your copy/paste from? what url?
