Acer saccharinum
Silver Maple

Silver Maple seedlings need no period of dormancy before they germinate; hence, in heavy fruiting years (usually springs that do not have a late frost), samaras that lodge in compost-laden gutters may germinate and further clog water drainage from these structures. This image actually shows seedlings growing in the gutter.
