Well done!
I said clue would be a give away.

Liquidambar styraciflua.
One of my favourite trees. Often mistaken for Acer/Maple from a distance.

One of my favourite trees too. I planted two in my friends garden and everyone comments on the autumn colour. They get better each year. Though I have never seen the corky bark. I believe it is not always present, might be something to do with the soil/growing conditions?

Tagwex - it's 'liquidambar' NOT drain cleaner.

Well done I never would have thought the bark of Liquidamber was like that and we have a fairly large specimen on site.
