It could be a cottonwood, aspen, or some of the poplars. We have them all here and with minor duffs to the leaves etc, they are close, I don't think that's a poplar.

The cottonwood will make quite the mess under the tree. Almost like a last little bit of snow in the woods come spring.
The city of Erie in their finite wisdom planted a bunch of them because they are pretty. Every spring it's one heck of a mess.

The Aspen we see here will have in the blossom a piece that kinda looks like a white fuzzy caterpillar or a white cheese puff.

You're going to have to wait for spring.

I don't think I've seen anything like that Ryan.  Good eyes.  Whatever it is, it's pretty cool.

birch are rare out here. If it were in iowa I would guess Sycamore. I 80 is lined with them.
Sycamore is a beautiful rayed wood to work and is often seen in drawers, the wood burnishes instead of wearing.
